Canadian soldiers jailed for attack

Amsterdam court has sentenced two Canadian soldiers to jail for beating up a 28-year-old man this spring but said there was not enough evidence the attack was made because the man was homosexual.

Eric Wright was sentenced to five months in prison and Ryan Dowie was given a 45-day jail term.
The soldiers also denied that the attack had been prompted by their victim’s sexuality.
