The remains of 482 victims of "Ethnic Cleansing" in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre have been uncovered in a mass grave in the village of Liplje in
Bosnia. Indentification of the victims is proving difficult with only 8 bodies complete and individual victims remains being scattered in as many of
three dump sites. 1000 people have been found in other graves in the area, all muslim victims of Serbian troops who overran the Bosnian enclave of
Srebrenica which had been declared a safe zone by the United Nations. It is understood that 16,000 bodies have been pulled from mass graves in the
country since the war and the death toll from the war was around 260,000. The victims were mainly muslim men and boys, who were "ethnically
Cleansed" in the war which involved the Croatian Catholics, Serbian Orthodox and Bosnian Muslims.
The leader of the forensic team, Murat Hurtic, said that of the hundreds of sets of remains found, only eight were complete, indicating the victims'
bodies had been moved from one site to another in an attempt to hide them.
Hurtic said the bodies in the mass grave in the village of Liplje had been removed from another site by bulldozer.
The remains of another 1,000 people have been found in four other mass graves in Liplje, Hurtic said. The identification process is difficult, he
said, because an individual's remains can be scattered in as many as three different sites.
"We actually cannot say exactly how many people were buried in this grave. Experts will now start examination of bones found in all five sites and
try to reassemble as many skeletons as possible," Hurtic said.
