Families Commemorate Victims of Srebrenica Massacre on 23rd Anniversary

SREBRENICA – The forest of pillar-shaped gravestones that mark the tombs of victims of the Bosnian massacre in Srebrenica was on Wednesday filled with loved ones there to pay tribute on the 23rd anniversary of the mass killing.

On July 11, 1995, more than 8,000 mainly Muslim males were killed by Bosnian-Serb troops who besieged Srebrenica despite it being a designated United Nations safe zone.

A group of 35 victims of the war crime, who were transferred from a mortuary in the central Bosnian town of Visoko, are set to be buried in the city’s Potocari Memorial Center later on Wednesday.

The Bosnian War took place within the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina and embroiled the country’s Muslim Bosniak, Serbian and Croat communities in a bloody conflict as regional leaders and militias jostled for autonomy in the wake of the break-up of Yugoslavia.
