Two Bosnian Serb army officers have been jailed for life for committing genocide at Srebrenica in 1995.

A third was convicted of aiding and abetting genocide in the “summary” execution of around 8000 Bosnian Muslims in the UN-declared safe haven zone, and jailed for 35 years.

Five other Bosnian Serb army and police officers were given sentences ranging from 5 to 35 years.

The Srebrenica trial is the largest ever conducted by the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia in the Hague.
