KOZARAC, Bosnia-Herzegovina – Bosnian families are burying the remains of 283 Muslims and one Roman Catholic Croat who were killed at the start of the Bosnian war of 1992-95.
The bodies were laid out in green coffins in a sports field in Kozarac, where prayers were held for them before burial in various graveyards in the area.
One of the mourners was a woman who buried her husband and six sons.
The victims were killed in the summer of 1992, when Serb troops went from house to house in the area of Prijedor in northwest Bosnia and killed any non-Serbs they found. They hid the bodies in mass graves, some of which have only been discovered recently.
About 10,000 Bosnians remain missing from the war.
