The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia has convicted former Bosnia Serb Army commander Gen. Zdravko Tolimir of war crimes for his role in the 1993 massacre in Srebrenica of more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys. Due to his knowledge and participation in the event, the court ruled that Tolomir is “responsible for the crime of genocide.” The ruling comes as Bosian Serb political leader Radovan Karadzic and top military commander Ratko Mladic also face charges of genocide in The Hague.
