    Investigators in the Netherlands are trying to find out how Slobodan Praljak, the former Bosnian Croat general who was convicted of war crimes, managed to smuggle poison into court to commit suicide.

    Praljak drank the poison just seconds after hearing he had lost his appeal against a 20-year-prison sentence.
