DID YOU KNOW?  -- Three years before the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide, Serbs torched Bosniak villages and killed at least 3,166 Bosniaks around Srebrenica. In 1993, the UN described the besieged situation in Srebrenica as a "slow-motion process of genocide." In July 1995, Serbs forcibly expelled 25,000 Bosniaks, brutally raped many women and girls, and systematically killed 8,000+ men and boys (DNA confirmed).

As evident from the latest poll, most Serb civilians are not better than those who committed genocide in their name. Majority of Serbs celebrate genocide in Srebrenica and support notorious Serbian war criminals indicted for genocide in Bosnia.

More than half of Serbia's population would not approve sending fugitive Bosnian Serb General Ratko Mladic to face trial for genocide at the UN war crimes court, RFE/RL's Balkan Service reports.

Mladic and former Bosnian Serb political leader Radovan Karadzic were indicted by the Hague-based court for genocide during the 1992-95 war, including the siege of Sarajevo and the 1995 massacre of some 8,000 BosniaK men in Srebrenica.

The Serbian government has issued a 10 million euro ($14.1 million) reward for information leading to his capture, but only 34 percent of those polled said they would approve of Mladic being arrested, while 40 percent said they regard him as a hero.

An overwhelming 78 percent said they would not report Mladic to the authorities, according to the findings of the poll, which was conducted for the Serbian government's National Council for Cooperation with The Hague Tribunal.
