Mass Graves Bear Witness To Wounds Of Tajik War

June 27 is Tajikistan's National Unity Day, a commemoration of the 1997 peace deal that ended five years of bloody civil war. Fifteen years after the conflict ended, many questions remain unanswered and countless victims remain missing or have not received a proper burial. Akram Qahhorov of RFE/RL's Tajik Service visited the site of several mass graves in western Tajikistan and spoke to survivors whose memories of war are still painfully fresh.
