Bosnia: Experts Find Yet Another Mass Grave

Sarajevo, 17 July 2001 (RFE/RL) -- The Muslim Commission for Missing Persons said today two mass graves have been found, containing the bodies of Muslim civilians killed at the beginning of the 1992-95 Bosnian war. The deputy head of the commission, Jasmin Odobasic, said the mass graves were discovered near the town of Sanski Most, some 175 km northwest of the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo.

He said the victims were Muslims from three villages who had been "executed" by Bosnian Serb soldiers in 1992.

During the 1992-95 Bosnian war, an estimated 200,000 people were killed and more than 20,000 people are still missing.

Since the end of the war, more than 6,000 bodies have been exhumed all over the country.
