BELGRADE – Ljubisa Beara, a former Bosnian Serb officer convicted by ICTY for the 1995 Srebrenica massacre, has died in a German prison, authorities said.

Beara, 77, a security chief in the wartime Bosnian Serb Army headquarters, died on February 8, authorities said on February 10.

Appeals judges at the ICTY largely upheld the convictions in 2015, after which Beara was sent to Berlin’s Tegel prison to serve his life sentence.
