APPEALS PANEL REJECTS WAR CRIMES CONVICTION

An appeals panel at the U.N. war crimes tribunal dismissed the conviction of a Bosnian Croat for crimes against Muslims in 1993 and reduced his sentence from 45 to nine years.

Gen. Tihomir Blaskic, 43, has spent more than eight years in prison for ordering an ethnic cleansing campaign against Muslim villages in central Bosnia that left hundreds dead and forced tens of thousands more to flee.
