Bosnia Massacre

The Hague: Former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic was Thursday found guilty of genocide by UN war crimes judges and sentenced to 40 years in jail over the worst atrocities on European soil since World War II.

Karadzic was also found guilty of nine other charges including murder and persecution, but in a blow to thousands of victims, he was acquitted of genocide in seven Bosnian towns and villages during the 1992-1995 war.
