A court in the Netherlands ruled Wednesday that the Dutch state was liable for the deaths of over 300 Bosnian Muslim men and boys in the Srebrenica massacre, the worst atrocity on European soil since World War II.Families of the victims had brought a case the Dutch government over the 1995 killings, accusing Dutch U.N. peacekeepers of failing to protect the 8,000 people slaughtered by ethnic Serb troops just a few months before the end of the Bosnian war.In April, the Netherlands said it would pay 20,000 euros to relatives of three Bosnian Muslims murdered in 1995 after peacekeepers expelled them from the compound.
