Serbs ‘sorry’ for massacre of 8,000 Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica

Serbia's apology for the massacre of 8,000 Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica in 1993 could help reconciliation in the war-scarred Balkans, its president said yesterday.

Parliament narrowly approved the declaration condemning the worst carnage in Europe since the Second World War allegedly committed by Bosnian Serb troops led by wartime commander Ratko Mladic.

The country is still divided over Serbia's role in the 1990s conflict. European Union officials welcomed the apology.
