Serb Officials Convicted Over 1995 Massacre

Netherlands: Seven former high-ranking Bosnian Serb military and police officials were convicted Thursday for their roles in the notorious 1995 Srebrenica massacre. The men were found guilty of a range of crimes including genocide, extermination, murder, and persecution.

More than 7,000 Muslim men and boys were killed in the Bosnian town of Srebrenica in 1995 when ethnic Serb troops overran a United Nations safe area. The five-day slaughter was the worst European massacre since World War II.
