200 Victims of Srebrenica Massacre Discovered

From the Washington Post:

Forensic experts have recovered the remains of 213 victims of Europe's worst massacre since World War II, an official said Tuesday. In 1995, Serb troops overran the eastern Bosnian enclave of Srebrenica, which had been declared a safe zone by the United Nations, and killed as many as 8,000 Muslim men and boys. The bodies found Tuesday were originally buried elsewhere but later dug up by bulldozer and moved to Liplje to cover up the massacre, Hurtic said. About 1,000 victims were found in four other mass graves previously discovered in Liplje, Hurtic said.
