Ejup Ganic extradition request denied by UK court

A British court has rejected a request from Serbia to extradite a former Bosnian leadfer, Ejup Ganic, to face war crimes charges.

The former acting president is wanted for prosecution over alleged atrocities he denies committing in Sarajevo in 1992.

But a judge in London turned down the application, saying there was evidence his trial could be "politically motivated".

Mark Lowen reports from Belgrade.
