The United Nations' highest court ruled Monday that Serbia failed to use its clear influence with Bosnian Serbs to prevent the genocide of Bosnian Muslims at Srebrenica, but exonerated Serbia of direct responsibility for genocide or complicity in genocide in Bosnia during the 1992-95 war. In a lengthy ruling, the International Court of Justice said the leaders of Serbia "should have made the best effort within their power to try and prevent the tragic events then taking shape" in the UN enclave, the scale of which "might have been surmised."
