A Bosnian Muslim woman touches a coffin containing remains of relatives loaded on a truck on July 9, 2009 as a convoy with 534 bodies is about to leave the morgue in central Bosnian town of Visoko, on its way to Srebrenica. The 534 bodies were excavated from mass graves in Eastern Bosnia and were identified as Muslims killed by Bosnian Serb forces in Srebrenica area during the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The bodies are transported to memorial center in Potocari near Srebrenica where they will be buried on 11 July, 2009, on 14th anniversary of the massacre.
