A court has convicted seven Bosnian Serbs of genocide committed in Srebrenica in 1995. Another four were acquitted.Three former policemen were sentenced 42 years in prison; another three former policemen received 40-year sentences and one was sent to prison for 38 years.

Tuesday's ruling was the Bosnian war crimes court's first sentence related to Srebrenica, the worst massacre committed in Europe since World War II.

The seven were convicted of killing of more than 1,000 captured Muslim Bosniak men after Bosnian Serb forces conquered the eastern Bosnian town of Srebrenica.
