25 years on, Srebrenica dead still being identified, buried

25 years on, Srebrenica dead still being identified, buriedSREBRENICA, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — A quarter of a century after they were killed in Europe’s worst massacre since World War II, eight Bosnian men and boys will be laid to rest Saturday in a cemetery just outside of Srebrenica — their marble gravestones joining thousands more, each with the same month and year of death. Over 8,000 Bosnian Muslims perished in 10 days of slaughter after the town was overrun by Bosnian Serb forces in the closing months of the country’s 1992-95 fratricidal war. When the remains are identified, they are returned to their relatives and reburied in the Potocari memorial cemetery.
