About 100 former Dutch U.N. peacekeepers may sue the government for sending them to defend the Bosnian enclave of Srebrenica in 1995, after the defense ministry admitted it had been a mission "impossible," lawyers said Tuesday.Europe's worst atrocity since World War II occurred in mid-July 1995, when lightly armed U.N. Dutch peacekeepers were overrun by Bosnian Serb troops in the supposedly U.N.-protected "safe haven" of Srebrenica.The events led to the fall of the government in 2002, and the Netherlands became the first ever country to be held responsible for the acts of its U.N. peacekeepers when a Dutch court ruled in 2013 that the state was liable for the deaths of over 300 Bosnian men and boys.
