Families of Srebrenica victims compensated by Dutch government

The Dutch government announced today that it would give $28000 compensation to the families of there men killed in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre, reports  the Associated Press.

The compensation pay out comes as a result of a ruling by the Dutch Supreme Court that held the Netherlands accountable for the deaths of three Bosnian Muslims after Dutch troops serving the United Nations peacekeeping force turned the men over to Bosnian Serb forces.
