A Bosnian Muslim girl touches coffins of relatives, among coffins of Srebrenica victims displayed at the memorial centre of Potocari near Srebrenica on July 10, 2009. The 534 bodies were excavated from mass-graves in Eastern Bosnia and were identified as Muslims killed by Bosnian-Serb forces in the Srebrenica area. Bosnian Serb troops massacred up to 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men after capturing Srebrenica on July 11, 1995, during the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The 534 identified victims will be buried on July 11 in the Potocari Memorial Center, next to some 3,500 victims of the massacre already buried there.

I wonder what took so long for them to excavate this mass grave? Anyway, I'm glad they were able to identify (at least some of?) the people. Maybe now their families can get a little closure.
