, THE HAGUE, May 29 – Former Bosnian Croat president Jadranko Prlic and five co-accused were on Wednesday jailed for between 25 and 10 years for murdering and deporting Muslims in Bosnia in the early 1990s to create a “greater Croatian state.”

The six, all top former Bosnian Croat officials, faced 26 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity for their roles in the brutal conflict which formed part of the greater war that broke out after Yugoslavia crumbled in 1991 and in which 100,000 people were killed.
