Srebrenica suspect pleads not guilty
A Bosnian Serb army officer who voluntarily surrendered to the international war crimes tribunal has pleaded not guilty to charges of crimes against humanity.

Dragan Jokic has been charged with participation in the massacre of more than 7,000 Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica in 1995.

Colonel Jokic was the chief engineer of the Bosnian Serb brigade that overran the town, and is alleged to have assisted in the killings and subsequent burial of the victims.

He is the fourth man to be charged over the massacre, described as Europe's worst atrocity since World War II.
