Serbia President 'Apologises for Srebrenica Massacre'

(AFP) Serbia's nationalist President Tomislav Nikolic on Thursday personally apologised for the first time for the 1995 Srebrenica massacre of 8,000 Muslims, but stopped short of calling it genocide.

"I kneel and ask for forgiveness for Serbia for the crime committed in Srebrenica," Nikolic said in an interview to be aired on Bosnian national television, parts of which have already been disseminated on You Tube.

Nikolic's office confirmed to AFP authenticity of the statement.
