Survivors of the Srebrenica massacre and their relatives were happy with the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) verdict to sentence former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic to life in prison, in The Hague on Tuesday.

The appeal court increased the initial 40-year jail term to a life sentence dismissing most of Karadzic’s appeals.

People called the verdict "righteous" adding that any outcome other than a life sentence would not be fair.

In March 2016 a UN tribunal for the former Yugoslavia found Karadzic guilty of 10 out of 11 counts of genocide, war crimes and other atrocities committed during the Bosnian War. Some of the charges were linked to involvement in the Srebrenica massacre of July 1995.
