65 victims have been retrieved so far at a mass grave in Bosnia

Vastavam web: The remains of at least 65 victims have been retrieved from a mass grave recently found in central Bosnia, forensic experts said today about the site of one of the most gruesome crimes of Bosnia’s 1992-95 war.Lejla Cengic from Bosnia’s Missing Persons Institute said the remains, which included 65 skulls, were found in a grave at the Koricanske Stijene cliff near Mount Vlasic. The remains are believed to belong to some of over 220 non-Serb civilians executed in the area by Bosnian Serb forces on August 21, 1992.
Most of those killed were taken from notorious Serb-run detention camps near the northwestern town of Prijedor and told they were going for a prisoner exchange.Only a dozen men survived by falling or jumping down the ravine when the shooting started.After the killings, the Bosnian Serbs removed the bodies from the bottom of the cliff and buried them under rocks in several locations in the wider area of Koricanske Stijene. The Missing Persons Institute and the victims’ relatives have been searching the area for the remains since the end of the war.So far, 11 former Bosnian Serb policemen from Prijedor have been sentenced for the slayings at Koricanske Stijene.
