Kosovo’s President Thaci resigns to face charges for war crimes

Kosovo’s President Hashim Thaci has announced his resignation in order "to protect the integrity of the presidency of Kosovo". He will now face charges for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity at a special Kosovo court based in The Hague.

Along with him, nine other former rebel leaders during Kosovo's independence war from Serbia in the late 1990s have been indicted.
