Thousands in Bosnia commemorate 1995 Srebrenica massacre | AP News

Must Read

At the entrance of Srebrenica, a memorial cemetery contains the reburial of 47 men and three adolescents. They join the almost 6,600 massacre victims already interred there. Salim Mustafic, who was 16 years old when he was murdered in 1995, is commemorated by a mass burial of his fragmentary remains. In July 1995, Bosnian Serbs overran a safe haven protected by the United Nations and massacred 8,000 Bosniak men and boys. The genocide in Srebrenica was the only occurrence of the Bosnian conflict to be officially classified.

A special United Nations war crimes tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague has condemned about fifty Bosnian Serb wartime officers. Most Serb authorities in Bosnia and Serbia continue to minimize or deny the 1995 massacre.
