Kosovo ex-PM Ramush Haradinaj cleared of war crimes


A UN war crimes tribunal has cleared former Kosovan Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj of war crimes dating back to 1998, after a retrial in The Hague.

Mr Haradinaj and two of his lieutenants from the Kosovo Liberation Army were accused of atrocities against Serb, Albanian and Roma civilians in 1998.

But the UN court ruled that the prosecution had not proved the case.
