THE HAGUE (Reuters) - U.N. war crimes judges on Wednesday imposed a prison sentence of 10 years on Serbian ultra-nationalist Vojislav Seselj, overturning an earlier acquittal on charges of persecution, deportation and inhumane acts.
Seselj, a close wartime ally of then Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic, has already served 12 years in pre-trial detention.
