    An Israeli court has ruled that a Bosnian Serb should be extradited to face trial for war crimes during the Srebrenica massacre.

    Aleksandar Cvetkovic is wanted for his involvement in the 1995 atrocity, which saw more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys killed by the Serbian Republic Army.

    The Bosnian authorities allege that he was a member of a firing squad responsible for murdering up to 1,200 Muslims at the Branjevo Farm that July.

    The genocide, during the ex-Yugoslav republic's 1992-1995 war, remains the worst violence to take place in Europe since the Holocaust.

    Cvetkovic has a Jewish wife and gained Israeli citizenship after he moved to the country five years ago.

    But in January the 42-year-old was arrested following an extradition request from the Bosnia and Herzegovina government. He has until the end of the month to appeal to Israel's Supreme Court.
