PHOTOS: CONVOY ARRIVES TO SREBRENICA
July 10, 2009
Convoy carrying 534 caskets of the DNA-identified victims of the Srebrenica genocide has arrived to Srebrenica. We bring you exclusive photos directly from the scene.
BACKGROUND: Serbs from heavily militarized villages around Srebrenica had terrorized Srebrenica population and constantly attacked neighbouring Bosnian Muslim villages from 1992-1995. In July 1995 the Bosnian Serb army staged a brutal takeover of Srebrenica and its surrounding area, where they proceeded to perpetrate genocide. Bosnian Serb soldiers separated Bosniak families, forcibly expelled 25,000-30,000 people, summarily executed at least 8,372 boys, men, and elderly, and dumped them into mass graves.
