Scenes show the opening of a mass
grave from the 1995 massacre of 7000 Bosnian Muslim men by Serb (Chetnik)
forces while the Dutch UN Peacekeepers did nothing to protect the civilian
population. 30,000+ people, mostly Bosnian Muslims, attended the memorial
on July 10, 2007 where these photos were taken. 465 victims, found in mass
graves and identified by DNA testing we formally buried at the Potocari
memorial. The bodies were in modest wood coffins draped in green, and
carried by the crowd over their heads to the burial site.
Haris Silajdzic won the Muslim Bosniak seat in the Bosnian three-member presidency. He is shown in center wearing a tie.
