4 Serbs sen­tenced:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

Four Ser­bian men got sus­pended prison terms on Tues­day for tak­ing parts in riots at the US em­bassy in 2008 — a long-de­layed case that has soured re­la­tions be­tween Bel­grade and Wash­ing­ton.

The four were con­victed of hurl­ing stones at the em­bassy dur­ing protests over per­ceived US sup­port for Koso­van in­de­pen­dence. They were not charged over a fire that broke out at the peak of the riots and de­stroyed part of the build­ing.

Wash­ing­ton has pressed for pros­e­cu­tions for al­most a decade, but no one has so far been con­victed over the blaze which killed one pro­tester. (RTRS)
