War criminal Slobodan Praljak has died in hospital after drinking what he claimed to be poison during a court appearance, Croatia's prime minister has confirmed. Many TV news channels worldwide were carrying this sentencing appearance live.

The former Croatian army chief drank from a small bottle and yelled "I am not a war criminal, I oppose this conviction" when his 20-year sentence was upheld by UN judges at The Hague.

The dramatic turn of events, which was broadcast on a video feed, forced the judges to temporarily suspend the hearing, with paramedics seen entering the courtroom.

The hearing resumed a few hours after the shocking development, with presiding judge Carmel Aguis saying: "Courtroom one is now a crime scene."

It's rumoured he drank cyanide.

outrageous that he managed to kill himself in this way, he deserved a much harsher punishment than death.

Yes he should have been alive to face his sentence, it should be seriously considered now making sure suspects are checked using airport style scanner machines before they enter court to prevent something like this happening again.

Yes, how the hell did he get a phial of cyanide in to the courtroom? An accomplice obviously. Interesting watching the judge who just carried on speaking as if nothing had happened until his lawyer leapt to his feet and said "my client's just taken poison" then he apparently collapsed. Cyanide takes less than 2 minutes to kill apparently and there was absolutely nothing medics could have done to save him, even in hospital.

Herman Goring did this during the Nuremberg Trials in 1946 but he did it in his cells!

I would've thought people were searched before entering court - at least they probably will be following this. Made me gasp when I saw the clip.

I have been to court a few times for journalism purposes (albeit just in the UK) and was searched extensively every time! Shocking that these procedures were apparently not in place here.

I once went to the Old Bailey to watch a case in the public gallery overlooking a court and was searched and had to go through airport style detectors.
