Bosnian Serb General Pleads Not Guilty to Srebrenica Charges


General Vinko Pandurevic
A Bosnian Serb general has pleaded not guilty to war crimes charges linked to the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.

Appearing before the United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague Tuesday, General Vinko Pandurevic pleaded innocent to seven counts ranging from genocide to crimes against humanity and violating the customs of war.

General Pandurevic surrendered to The Hague court in March. The charges involve his role in the 1995 deaths of up to 8,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica after Serb forces captured the Muslim enclave in eastern Bosnia-Herzegovina.
