The Greek role in Bosnia's war

Journalist sued over claims Greek fighters were involved in Srebrenica massacre.

    Bosnian Muslims are marking 15 years since Serb soldiers slaughtered an estimated 9,000 men and boys in the town of Srebrenica.

    Less talked about is the alleged role Greek volunteers played while supporting the Serbian army in the Bosnian war.

    Takis Michas, a Greek journalist, is now being sued for libel after he claimed Greeks were involved in the massacre.

    He says that about 100 Greeks fought against the Bosnian government, with tacit support from the Greek government.
