2 Bosnian Serbs sentenced for Srebrenica genocide

Bosnia's war crimes court has sentenced two Bosnian Serbs to at least 30 years each in prison for genocide against Muslims in the eastern town of Srebrenica during Bosnia's 1992-95 war.

A court statement said Friday that Dusko Jevic, 44, was sentenced to 35 years and Mendeljev Djuric, 52, to 30 years in prison. The court said they were guilty of expelling Muslims from Srebrenica and for taking part in the killing of 1,000 prisoners after the town was overrun by Bosnian Serb forces in July 1995.

Two other Bosnian Serbs, Nedjo Ikonic and Goran Markovic, were acquitted Friday of the same crimes.
