Bosnian Muslim woman, Šeća Delić, said goodbyes to her two sons – Zijad and Sead.
“We have seen with our hearts and felt with our souls what they had done to us. Sead was only 17 years old. He was attending a school. I begged the Serbs to let him go. They knew he was only a student. Our Serb neighbours from nearby villages came and took my sons. They told me: ‘Go home. Nothing will happen to your sons.’ They also took my husband, my father in law, 19 members of our family. They killed them all,” said Šeća.
