Four Serb paramilitaries seen in a video executing Bosnian Muslims near Srebrenica in 1995 were found guilty on Tuesday by Serbia's War Crimes Court for the murders, and sentenced to 58 years in prison. A fifth defendant, also a member of the notorious Scorpions paramilitary unit, was found not guilty at the landmark trial. It was Serbia's first case related to Europe's worst atrocity since WWII - the murder of up to 8,000 Muslim men and boys in the final months of the 1992-95 ethnic conflict in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
