The head of the Bosnian Muslim forces during the Balkan wars of the 1990s was sentenced Sept. 15 by a United Nations court to three years’ imprisonment over the cruel treatment his troops inflicted on Bosnian Serb soldiers captured during the conflict. The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), which sits in The Hague, found Rasim Delic guilty of failing to take necessary and reasonable measures to prevent and punish the cruel treatment carried out by the El Mujahed Detachment of the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
