Nine Charged Over Srebrenica To Be Tried Together

22 September 2005 (RFE/RL) -- Nine people charged over the Srebrenica massacre 10 years ago in Bosnia will be tried together by the international war crimes tribunal.

The court in The Hague said today it will put together the cases of the Bosnian Serb military officers accused, eight of whom are in the court's custody.

Up to 8,000 Muslim men and boys were killed in Srebrenica in July 1995 when Bosnian Serb forces overran the UN-protected enclave.

Meanwhile, forensic experts have recovered the remains of more than 70 victims of the massacre from a mass grave in northeastern Bosnia.

The head of the forensic team, Murat Hurtic, said the mass grave in the village of Liplje could contain up to 150 bodies.
