Serbian Vlastimir Djordjevic jailed over Kosovo murders

A former Serbian chief of police has been jailed for 27 years for his role in the murder of more than 700 ethnic Albanians in Kosovo in 1999.

The UN tribunal at The Hague found Vlastimir Djordjevic guilty of five counts of crimes against humanity, including murder and deportation.

Djordjevic had said he was not guilty as he had no control over Serb forces.
