- More victims found in Srebrenica


The bodies of more victims have been found in Srebrenica just days ahead of the 11th anniversary of what is widely seen as Europe’s worst massacre since World War Two. Over 250 victims have already been unearthed at the Jaz mass grave, in a village near the eastern town of Zvornik. According to experts the bodies were transferred here from the site of the massacre in an effort to cover up the crime.

Digging is continuing and the discovery of more corpses is expected. Hundreds of newly-identified victims, including those found this week, will be buried in a memorial cemetery on July 11th, the anniversary of the fall of Srebrenica to Bosnian Serb troops.
