The Dutch state is liable for the deaths of three Muslim men from the Bosnian city of Srebrenica in the 1990s, the Supreme Court of the Netherlands ruled Friday.

The men had sought refuge in the compound of the Dutch mission, which was under the command of the United Nations Protection Force and was participating in peacekeeping operations in Bosnia after the collapse of Yugoslavia.
