Sweden released former Bosnian Serb President Biljana Plavsic Tuesday, two-thirds into an 11-year jail term for war crimes, according to the Swedish prison authority. She immediately left Sweden and returned home to Serbia.

“I don’t know what to think being free after eight years,” Plavsic told reporters after landing in Belgrade.
The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague, which convicted Plavsic in February 2003, consented last month to grant her an early release.
