Germany jails Serb war crimes convict

Germany has signed an agreement with the War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague for the Bosnian Serb convict Dusko Tadic to serve his twenty-year sentence in Germany.

Mr Tadic was convicted for his part in crimes committed against Muslim prisoners at the camps of Omarska and Trnopolje, in northern Bosnia; he was the first former Yugoslav citizen to be tried by the Tribunal.

The justice minister Herta Daeubler-Gmelin said Germany was demonstrating its support for the Tribunal's effort to combat violence and terror.

The War Crimes Tribunal doesn't have prison facilities of its own.
