Serbia hails war crimes acquittal of ex-intelligence chief

Serbia hailed the UN war crimes tribunal's decision Thursday to acquit Serb ex-intelligence chief Jovica Stanisic and his deputy of running Bosnian death squads during the 1992-1995 war.

"Serbia has always advocated fair trials to all those accused before the tribunal in The Hague as the only way to establish the truth about the war and make conditions for reconciliation, peace and stability in the region," Prime Minister Ivica Dacic told AFP.
