The AP is reporting:
Bosnia’s top war crimes court has confirmed genocide indictments against four former Bosnian Serb soldiers suspected of killing more than 800 people in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.The court said Friday that the indictment alleges that Franc Kos, Branimir Manojlovic, Stanko Kojic and Vlastimir Golijan killed ”with the aim of destroying, in whole or in part, the national, ethnic and religious group of Bosniaks.”
Bosnian Serb forces overran Srebrenica in July 1995, killing nearly 8,000 men. Their bodies are still being exhumed from mass graves.
The Srebrenica killings were the worst massacre in Europe since World War II.
The charges confirmed by the court were made a week go by prosecutors. No date has been set yet for the trial in Sarajevo.
