Dutch Soldiers Take Ministry of Defense to Court

Dutch soldiers of the Dutchbat battalion, a part of the U.N. forces in Srebrenica, are taking the Dutch Ministry of Defense to court.  They say that they were not protected against asbestos, radiation, and other poisonous materials in the location in which they served.  According to their commander, Thom Karremans, the soldiers should never have been located in the heavily damaged and dirty factory for car batteries.  The Ministry of Defense says that the soldiers had not been submitted to undue risk, however, it admits that they were not sufficiently informed.
