The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in the Hague has upheld the conviction of two Bosnian Serb commanders who killed dozens of Muslims.

The Lukic cousins tried to overturn their sentencing for the killing of Muslims during Bosnia's 1992-95 civil war.

But the verdict has sparked anger among Serbs.
