UN war crimes judges have found former Bosnian Serbian general Ratko Mladić guilty of crimes against humanity and genocide during Bosnia's 1992-1995 war, according to Deutsche Welle

Former Bosnian Serbian commander Ratko Mladić was found guilty of crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide for his role in the 1995 massacre in Srebrenica. He was sentenced to life imprisonment by the United Nations' International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). He was convicted under 10 out of 11 charges.

The reading of the verdict was temporarily adjourned after an angry outburst by 75-year-old Mladic, who was removed from the courtroom.

His defense team had tried to delay the hearing on the grounds of Mladic’s increased blood pressure, saying that he was in ill health after suffering three strokes.

Mladic's lawyer said that they plan on appealing the ruling.

The Srebrenica massacre was the July 1995 genocide of more than 8,000 Muslim Bosniaks, mainly men and boys, in and around the town of Srebrenica during the Bosnian War. The killings were perpetrated by units of the Bosnian Serb Army of Republika Srpska (VRS) under the command of General Ratko Mladić.
