A United Nations court on Tuesday upheld the life sentence for former Bosnian Serb military leader Ratko Mladic for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity during the Bosnian War.

In a historic 2017 trial, Mladic was convicted of genocide for his role in overseeing the 1995 Srebrenica massacre in which some 8,000 Bosniak men and boys were killed by troops under his command. EFE
