Prosecutors appealed to a United Nations court in the Hague Tuesday to convict former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic of genocide for the killing of Croats and Muslims across Bosnia during the 1992-95 war.Karadzic, 72, was found guilty of genocide in May 2016 from 10 counts of war crimes, including the siege of Sarajevo and the 1995 Srebrenica massacre in which about 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed by Bosnian Serb forces.Prosecutors Tuesday appealed his acquittal on the 11th count, saying he should face an additional genocide conviction.The original trial judges had ruled that prosecutors fell short of the proving genocide, which would have required showing an intent to destroy Muslim and Croat populations, rather than merely slaughtering many to drive them out.
