Genocide indictment against Bosnian Serb Zeljko Ivankovic, for murder
of 1,000 Muslims in Srebrenica
SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) – Bosnia's war crimes court says a former Bosnian Serb police officer accused of taking part in the killing of at least 1,000 Muslim Bosniak men from the town of Srebrenica will be tried for genocide.
The Court of Bosnia-Herzegovina charged in a statement Friday that, as a member of a Bosnian Serb special police unit, Zeljko Ivankovic, 37, killed the victims in a warehouse into which Bosnia Serbs had herded them, “with a view to entirely destroying a group of Bosniaks.”
The 1995 massacre of 8,100 Bosniaks that followed the Serb occupation of the east Bosnian town of Srebrenica is considered the worst carnage in Europe since World War II.
