Thousands mourn Srebrenica victims as tensions mount in Bosnia

The remains of 30 victims of the Srebrenica massacre in Bosnia and Herzegovina have been laid to rest as thousands of people commemorated its anniversary against a backdrop of surging tensions.
28 years after they were murdered, 27 men and three teenage boys only recently identified through DNA analysis were buried at a vast and ever-expanding cemetery just outside Srebrenica in eastern Bosnia on Tuesday.
The vast majority of people killed by the Bosnian Serb military and police forces in the Srebrenica genocide in 1995 were men and boys. However, dozens of women were among them. The oldest victim of the genocide in Srebrenica was actually a woman. She was 94 when she was killed. And this is the grave of the youngest victim – a baby girl named Fatima, who lived only for a couple of hours after she was born.
