Balkans: August 3, 2002


: New gravesites are still being found near Srebrenica. Bosnian officials announced that in the last two weeks 207 bodies have been exhumed from a mass grave site discovered near Srebrenica in early July. The bodies have been identified as being those of victims from the Srebrenica massacre. Heres one of the grisly details that indicate execution: The wrist and hand bones of some of the bodies were still bound with wire. The same report also confirmed a second gravesite has been discovered nearby containing at least 100 bodies. This brings to close to 6,000 the total number of bodies exhumed around Srebrenica.
