Sarajevo (Bosnia-Herzegovina): Bosnia's war crimes court has convicted a former Bosnian Serb army officer of aiding genocide over his role in the executions of Srebrenica Muslims during the country's 1992-95 war.

Ostoja Stanisic, former commander of a Bosnian Serb army battalion in the eastern village of c, was sentenced Friday to 11 years in prison for ordering soldiers under his command to guard Muslim Bosniak prisoners despite knowing that they were brought to the village to be executed.

He also ordered his soldiers to assist with burial in a mass grave of over 800 bodies of killed prisoners and with the cleaning of execution sites in and around the village.

The victims were among more than 8,000 Bosniak men and boys who were killed in and around Srebrenica in just a few days in July 1995.
