A former U.S. General, John Sheehan, has blamed the presence of gay soldiers in the Dutch army for the Srebrenica massacre in 1995.
The town was under the protection of Dutch peacekeepers when Bosnian Serb forces killed 8000 Muslim men and boys.
Gen Sheehan told a US Senate hearing on allowing gay people to serve openly in the US military, that Dutch leaders had told him that the presence of gay soldiers had contributed to the Bosnian massacre.
Dutch officials have rejected the claims. Sybrand Buma MP, chief whip of the Dutch Christian Democrats, reacts to General Sheehan's comments.
