Bosnia Marks 20 Years Since Srebrenica Massacre

SREBRENICA:  Bosnia commemorates, today, the 20th anniversary of the massacre of around 8,000 men and boys in the UN-protected enclave of Srebrenica, as debate continues to rage over its description as genocide.

The remains of 136 newly identified victims will be laid to rest along with more than 6,000 others already buried at a memorial centre just outside the eastern Bosnian town.

Thousands of men and boys were slaughtered by Bosnian Serb forces after they captured Srebrenica in July 1995 near the end of Bosnia's inter-ethnic war, in the worst atrocity on European soil since World War II.
