Nearly 100 Srebrenica victims exhumed in eastern Bosnia

Sarajevo – Bosnian forensic experts Wednesday completed excavation of a mass grave at Zeleni Jadar near the eastern Bosnian town of Srebrenica, the Commission on Missing Persons confirmed. Murat Hurtic of the commission said six complete and 90 incomplete bodies were exhumed from the grave.

The exhumed remains, he said, were of the victims of the 1995 massacre in Srebrenica, in which Bosnian Serb troops killed up to 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men after capturing the area on July 11, 1995, during the 1992-95 war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Hurtic also said the commission would start a new excavation in the wider region of Zeleni Jadar in the next couple of years. Some 3,000 victims of the massacre have been exhumed, identified and buried since the end of the war, while thousands of bags with remains still await identification.,nearly-100-srebrenica-victims-exhumed-in-eastern-bosnia.html
