Bosnian Serb president condemns videotaped Srebrenica killings

[JURIST] Bosnian Serb President Dragan Cavic [official profile] Friday denounced the brutal killing of six Bosnian Muslim youths by Serb paramilitaries recorded on video in Srebrenica in 1995 [JURIST report] and shown on Serbian television after being introduced in evidence last week at the war crimes trial of Slobodan Milosevic [JURIST news archive] at The Hague. Cavic condemned the act saying, "Whoever committed such a crime while perhaps claiming he is doing it in the name of his nation. . . committed a crime also against his own nation." He went on to say that Serbs should seek out the truth of such atrocities "no matter how ugly that truth might be." Aljazeera has more.
