    Kosovo President Hashim Thaci was detained at the Kosovo Tribunal in The Hague on Thursday, hours after he abruptly resigned to face an indictment from the war crimes court. The 52-year-old said he would step down to “protect the integrity” of the presidency after the court confirmed an indictment against him dating back to the 1990s conflict with Serbia, when Thaci was political chief of Kosovo’s rebel army.
