A Serbian far right leader has been sentenced to two years in prison for inciting violence during a gay pride march that left scores of people injured.
Belgrade's Higher Court also sentenced 13 extremists to prison terms ranging from eight to 18 months for the attacks on police guarding the event in October 2010.
The court ruled Wednesday that Milan Obradovic, the leader of extremist group Obraz, or Honor, organized groups who used violence to disrupt the gay gathering, Serbia's first in years.
The march was seen as a test for Serbia which is seeking to join the European Union after years of nationalism.
More than 140 people _ mostly police _ were injured, and downtown Belgrade suffered widespread damage during the daylong clashes.
