New Srebrenica mass grave found
A new mass grave containing more than 100 victims of the Srebrenica massacre of 1995 has been found in north-eastern Bosnia, a forensic team has said. An anonymous tip-off led the experts to the site in Snagovo, about 50km (30 miles) north of Srebrenica.
The head of the forensic team said the bodies were probably buried elsewhere and moved to the site with bulldozers.
Nearly 8,000 Muslim men and boys were killed by Serb forces who overran Srebrenica in July 1995.
The new site is the seventh mass grave to be found in Snagovo.
The remains of thousands of victims have been recovered there.
The head of the forensic team, Murat Hurtic, said the skeletons were crushed and compressed, indicating they had been moved.
The regional prosecutor in charge of genocide crimes, Alma Dzaferovic, said the grave held many clues about the identities of the bodies inside.
Nineteen whole skeletons had been exhumed already, she said.
„We have found blindfolds, wires and wallets of the victims of the Srebrenica massacre,” Ms Dzaferovic said.
The Muslim men and boys were killed after Bosnian Serbs overran a UN-designated safe area.
