A generic picture of a Xerox logo on a photocopier.(Reuters) - Xerox Corp , best known for its printers and copiers, reported a slightly better-than-expected quarterly profit as expenses declined 4 percent. Restructuring and better productivity led to higher margins, Xerox said on Friday. Xerox said last month it was selling its information technology outsourcing arm to French IT services firm Atos SE for $1.05 billion to focus on building up faster-growing units, business process outsourcing (BPO) and document outsourcing. The company bought Affiliated Computer Services Inc in 2009 to enter the services business, including BPO, IT services, cloud computing and data management.

Ljubisa Beara enters the courtroom of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague, Netherlands, Friday, Jan. 30, 2015. Appeals judges at the ICTY have upheld genocide convictions against two senior Bosnian Serbs for their roles in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre, the first final judgment for genocide by the United Nations court. Vujadin Popovic and Ljubisa Beara, convicted of the most serious offense in the war crimes statute, were high-ranking security officers with the Bosnian Serb army that overran Muslim forces and thinly armed U.N. troops in the Srebrenica enclave in July 1995 and subsequently murdered some 8,000 Muslim men and boys, Europe’s worst massacre since World War II. A small part of both men’s 2010 convictions was overturned in Friday’s ruling, but Presiding Judge Patrick Robinson reaffirmed their life sentences, the harshest punishment ever handed down by the court.(AP Photo/Michael Kooren, Pool)THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Appeals judges at the Yugoslav war crimes tribunal on Friday upheld genocide convictions against two senior Bosnian Serbs for their roles in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre, the first final judgment for genocide by the United Nations court.
