Hague war court acquits Croat generals

Thousands of people have lined the streets of the Croatian capital, Zagreb, to welcome home two former generals acquitted of war crimes by an appeal court in The Hague.

Ante Gotovina and Mladen Markac were freed after judges at the international court ruled there had been no evidence of unlawful attacks when they held senior positions.
