Generals on trial for war crimes

Three generals regarded as national heroes in Croatia have gone on trial at the UN war crimes tribunal for orchestrating the slaughter of at least 150 Serbs.

Ante Gotovina, Ivan Cermak and Mladen Markac are accused of launching a 1995 military campaign that unleashed widespread murder and pillage and led to the expulsion of up to 200,000 people in the offensive.

It was known as “Operation Storm,” and aimed at reclaiming the Krajina region of southern Croatia.
