The Yugoslav war crimes court on Wednesday jailed two former Bosnian Serb officials for 22 years for their roles in a campaign to rid Bosnia of Muslims, Croats and other non-Serbs early in the Balkan country's bloody 1992-95 war.

"The trial chamber hereby sentences Mico Stanisic" and his subordinate Stojan Zupljanin "to a single sentence of 22 years in prison," International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) judge Burton Hall said.
