Court: Dutch liable in 3 Srebrenica deaths

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — The Dutch Supreme Court has ruled that the Netherlands was liable for the deaths of three Bosnian Muslim men killed during the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.

The decision Friday upholds a 2011 appeals court judgment that was seen as setting a worrying precedent for countries providing troops for United Nations peacekeeping forces, as it held the Dutch state responsible for events that happened during a U.N. mission.
