Former Bosnian Serb military leader Radko Mladic refuses to testify at trial of Radovan Karadzic. Both face charges of genocide at the Hague war crimes tribunal
Hatidza Mehmedovic lost her husband, two sons and many other relatives during the Srebrenica massacre. After the genocide, she found her life's calling – pursuing justice for the perpetrators, but not revenge.
A 2004 report describing how Serb forces killed thousands of Bosniaks in Srebrenica in 1995 is "untrue" and "biased" according to the Serb-dominated entity in Bosnia, Milorad Dodik. Local lawmakers voted to revoke it.
For six years the former Bosnian Serb army chief Ratko Mladic stood trial at the Hague Tribunal. On Wednesday, 22 years after the war's end, he was sentenced to life in prison.
Serbian nationalists say this is not justice but revenge. DW's Dragoslav Dedovic says Ratko Mladic got what he deserved. But Serbia remains divided, so the verdict is not, unfortunately, a sign of hope.
