Srebrenica – Sites Of Execution - 08 Jul 2015
On Saturday, Bosnia marks the 20th anniversary of Europe’s worst mass killing since World War Two - the slaughter of some 8,000 Muslim men and boys by Bosnian Serb forces during five July days in 1995.

Even now, the forests and farmland around Srebrenica are yielding bones; over 1,000 victims are missing, tossed into pits then dug up months later and scattered in smaller graves by Bosnian Serb forces trying to conceal the crime.

From abandoned factories to agricultural cooperatives and soccer fields, Reuters photographer Dado Ruvic visited the sites where the killings took place.
