Six Bosnian Croat Leaders On Trial At The Hague

(RFE/RL) April 26, 2006 -- Six former high-level Bosnian Croat leaders have gone on trial in The Hague on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed during the Bosnian war in the early 1990s.

The men are accused of a campaign of ethnic cleansing against Bosnian Muslims, and of pursuing plans to create a "Greater Croatia" incorporating parts of Bosnia.

The defendants, including Jadranko Prlic, the one-time head of the self-proclaimed Bosnian Croat state, have all pleaded not guilty.
