Radovan Karadzic found guilty of genocide, sentenced to 40 years. Radovan Karadzic, nicknamed the "Butcher of Bosnia," was sentenced to 40 years in prison Thursday after being found guilty of genocide and other crimes against humanity over atrocities that Bosnian Serb forces committed during the Bosnian War from 1992 to 1995. A special U.N. court in The Hague, Netherlands, found the 70-year-old guilty of genocide over his responsibility for the Srebrenica massacre, in which more than 7,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were executed by Bosnian Serb forces under his command. Karadzic, former leader of the breakaway Serb Republic in Bosnia, is the highest-ranking political figure to have been brought to justice over the bitter ethnic conflicts that erupted with the collapse of the former Yugoslavia. Cruz on Trump's attacks on his wife: 'Leave Heidi the hell alone'. An angry and emotional Ted Cruz on Thursday ripped into Donald Trump for his attacks on Cruz's wife, Heidi, and repeatedly declined to say whether he would support Trump if he's the Republican presidential nominee. "Donald, you're a sniveling coward and leave Heidi the hell alone," Cruz told reporters after a factory tour in Dane, Wisconsin, pointing his finger at the cameras for emphasis. Asked then multiple times if he could still support Trump in November as the Republican nominee given his most recent comments, a fired-up Cruz paused for a few beats before not directly answering whether he would. "I'm going to beat Donald for the nomination," Cruz responded, before saying three times: "Donald Trump will not be the nominee."
