Srebrenica Update

Today, a Serbian Court sentenced four former Serb (para)military members who appeared in a film in which they executed six Muslim men. These members of the famed "Scorpions" who apparently were not sufficiently connected with the State for liability to attach to Serbia, were convicted of up to 20 years. One member, received 5 years, though he wasn't actually filmed during the killing, he could be heard on the tape before the prisoners are bussed out of town and shot.

Human Rights Activists and the victims' family's were disappointed with the judgment which also found insufficient evidence that the tape had anything to do with"Srebrenica" and avoided the word "genocide."
