Serbian Protestors Push For Recognition Of Srebrenica Genocide

In the Serbian capital, Belgrade, nongovernmental organizations asked the parliament to declare July 11 as Genocide Victims Remembrance Day in honor of those killed in the Srebrenica massacre in 1995. Bosnian Serb and Serb paramilitary forces killed more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica in the worst massacre of the Bosnian war. Serbia has adopted a declaration condemning the killings, but has not accepted the UN's description of the event as genocide.
