United Nations judges have rejected former Bosnian Serb military chief Ratko Mladic's appeal of his 2017 conviction for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity - a ruling that will keep him in prison for the rest of his life.

Mladic, who is 78, was sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of leading the massacre of more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica. He was also convicted of ordering unlawful attacks against civilians in Sarajevo during the three-year Bosnian war that ended in 1995.

The massacre in Srebrenica was the worst in Europe since World War II. Mladic maintains his innocence. His lawyers argued that his conviction was based on what they said were legal and factual mistakes, and that he should be acquitted or retried because others were responsible for atrocities.

Prosecutors also appealed Mladic's acquittal on another genocide charge related to the conflict. He was convicted of other crimes that include extermination, murder, terror and persecution. Tuesday's ruling all but ends the U.N.'s prosecutions of war crimes that claimed more than 100,000 lives and left millions homeless.

Unidentified gunmen ambushed and killed two workers from aid group Doctors with Africa in South Sudan's Lakes State on Monday in the latest of a string of attacks on aid workers in South Sudan.

Two other aid workers who were volunteers with an NGO were also injured, according to Matthew Hollingworth, the United Nations humanitarian coordinator in South Sudan. In a statement Tuesday, he said the workers were traveling in a clearly marked humanitarian vehicle as part of a convoy returning from a health facility.

The Lakes State health minister told VOA that he calls on the community to help find the Killers. Initial reports indicate the attackers emerged from the bush and opened fire on the convoy, according to Hollingworth, who called on South Sudanese local leaders and communities to protect humanitarian personnel trying to deliver assistance to people across the country.
