More Victims Found as Srebrenica Anniversary Looms


KAMENICA, Bosnia (Reuters) - Forensic experts said on Thursday they had unearthed the remains of 268 victims of the 1995 Srebrenica massacre, days before its 11th anniversary.

About 500 newly-identified victims of the Srebrenica slaughter, widely seen as Europe's worst atrocity since World War Two, will be buried on July 11 at a cemetery near the eastern town, where 2,000 victims have already been buried.

New victims are being unearthed at the Jaz mass grave, to where bodies were transferred from the site of the massacre to try to hide traces of the crime, the experts say.
