Bosnian experts find another mass grave

October 9, 2013

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Bosnian authorities say have they found a second mass grave near one they have been working on for the past month and from which they have so far excavated the remains of about 130 Bosniaks and Croats killed during the 1992-95 war.

The prosecutor’s office said Wednesday teams will now work on both graves and that according to available evidence, the bodies found so far belong to non-Serbs killed in and around the northwestern town of Prijedor in 1992.

Some 1,200 Bosniaks and Croats are still missing from the area of Prijedor. Most of them were killed in two nearby concentration camps by Serb forces seeking to eliminate non-Serbs from the parts of the country they controlled.
