A court in the Netherlands has ruled that the state was liable for the deaths of over 300 Bosnian Muslims in the Srebrenica massacre in 1995.

The court in the Hague ordered the Netherlands government to compensate the families of the victims.

The families of the victims had sued the Dutch government over the killings, accusing Dutch UN peacekeepers of failing to protect 8,000 people slaughtered by ethnic Serb forces in the Bosnian war.
