40,000 Mark 13th Anniversary Of 8000 Killed In Srebrenica Massacre -

Some 40,000 Bosnians converged on the town of Srebrenica on Friday to commemorate victims of a massacre in which some 8,000 Muslim civilians were killed by Bosnian Serb forces in July 1995. No one should try to minimise the gravity of the crime committed at Srebrenica - which was termed genocide by the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

The Srebrenica massacre (photo viewer caution) was the worst atrocity since World War II.

"Every year, more victims' bodies are found in mass graves around Srebrenica. DNA tests and other forensic methods have led to the identification and burial at the memorial center, which consists of a huge cemetery, a small museum and a row of marble blocks on which the names of the victims — those unearthed and those not — are engraved. Beyond the sea of 3,300 graves lies a huge field awaiting another 5,000 bodies yet to be found."
