Srebrenica lawsuit dismissed in The Hague





A district court in The Hague on Wednesday turned down a compensation claim by two families who lost relatives in the 1995 massacre of Bosnian Muslims at Srebrenica by Bosnian Serbs.

The families argued that Dutch United Nations peacekeepers at Srebrenica should have protected their relatives, some of whom worked on base.

The court ruled that the government could not be held responsible because the peacekeepers were under a United Nations mandate.
