'Justice eludes victims' as Yugoslavia tribunal ends

While many war criminals were brought to justice by for their role in the conflict in the former Yugoslavia, many victims are still living with the horrors of that time. For those, justice was not served, and their attackers still walk free.

    The UN's International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia has closed.

    A ceremony in The Hague - attended by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and Dutch King Willem-Alexander - marks the end of 24 years of investigations and prosecutions.

    The tribunal has been lauded for making significant contributions to the development of international law.

    But some victims in Sarajevo say the court has failed to bring them justice.

    Al Jazeera's David Chater reports from Sarajevo.
