Former Bosnian Serb Soldiers Charged with Genocide


Bosnia's top war crimes court has indicted four former Bosnian Serb soldiers in connection with the worst massacre on European soil since World War II.

The court Friday charged the four suspects with killing 800 Muslim men and boys as part of the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.

Prosecutors say the soldiers carried out the executions at a farm just outside of Srebrenica with "the aim of destroying a national, ethnic and religious group."

All four suspects were arrested earlier this year.

The Bosnian war crimes court has put dozens of Bosnian Serbs on trial for complicity in the Srebrenica killings, including former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic.

About 8,000 Muslim men and boys died during the massacre at the United Nations-protected enclave.

Some information for this report was provided by AP and Reuters.
