Bosnian Serb jailed for genocide





The Court of Bosnia and Hercegovina has sentenced a former Bosnian Serb army officer to 30 years in prison for his part in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.

Milorad Trbic had taken part in a plan to capture, detain, execute and bury all able-bodied Muslim men in the town with "genocidal intent", judges ruled.

In all, as many as 8,000 men and boys were killed by Serb forces towards the end of the three-year war in Bosnia.

The court has already jailed several others for their role in the massacre.
