Bosnian Serb leader rejects govt report acknowledging Srebrenica genocide

The Bosnian Serb leader, Milorad Dodik yesterday rejected a government report which acknowledged the Srebrenica genocide as "biased" and called for it to be withdrawn, AP reports. 

"The report is biased and does not mention Serb victims," Mr Dodik told parliament. His supporters voted to reject the report, arguing it was "not objective and is untrue". 

The report was written in 2004 by the previous Bosnian Serb government.

The rights group, Mothers of Srebrenica condemned Mr Dodik's actions as "shameful and inhumane toward the victims".
