Seselj Acquittal: Mixed Reaction From Village In Serbia

Residents of Hrtkovci, a village west of Belgrade, had a mixed reaction to the acquittal of Serbian nationalist Vojislav Seselj. A UN court in the Hague found Seselj not guilty on March 31 of charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity relating to the Balkan wars of the 1990s. Among other charges, he was accused of instigating the explusion of 800 ethnic Croats in Hrtkovci in May of 1992, but was cleared on all counts. (RFE/RL's Balkan Service)
