The Dutch supreme court has ruled that the Netherlands was liable for the deaths of three Bosnian Muslim men killed in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-23986063 The men had been ordered to leave a UN compound run by Dutch peacekeeping forces when Bosnian Serb forces overran it.
Considered Europe’s worst massacre since WWII, 7,500 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed in the atrocity.
The case centred on three Bosniaks (Bosnian Muslims) who were working for the Dutch force, Dutchbat, during the 1992-1995 Bosnian war.
They were among thousands who took shelter in the UN compound as Bosnian Serb forces commanded by Gen Ratko Mladic overran Srebrenica on 11 July 1995.
Two days later, Dutch peacekeepers forced the Bosniaks out of the compound.
