Thousands have gathered in Srebrenica to mark the 21st anniversary of Europe's worst mass murder since the Holocaust and to attend the funeral of 127 newly-found victims.

Family members sobbed as they hugged the coffins for the last time before they were to be buried at a cemetery Monday next to more than 6,000 other victims found previously in mass graves. The youngest to be buried this year was 14, the oldest 77.

International courts have defined the Serb massacre of over 8,000 Muslim Bosnian men and boys at the end of Bosnia's 1992-95 war as genocide.

Every year, forensic experts find new bodies and the remains are identified through DNA analysis before they are buried again at a memorial center near Srebrenica, where the victims were last seen alive.
