Bosnians Mourn Newly Identified Srebrenica Victims

Thousands of Sarajevans came out on July 9 to escort trucks carrying the remains of 409 people from Srebrenica who were killed in 1995. The remains -- which were recently identified in unmarked mass graves -- will be taken to Potocari and buried at a memorial center on July 11, the 18th anniversary of the massacre in which Bosnian Serb forces commanded by Ratko Mladic killed up to 8,000 Muslim men and boys and buried them in mass graves.
