BOSNIAN MUSLIM WOMAN WEEPS IN IDENTIFICATION CENTRE IN TUZLA ON UN
HUMAN RIGHTS DAY.
Aida Civic, a Bosnian Muslim refugee woman from Srebrenica, screems as
she enters a container with remains of around 3,500 killed Bosnian
Moslems, most of them from the once U.N. safe zone of Srebrenica, in an
identification centre of the Institute for missing persons in Tuzla
December 10, 2002. On July 11, 1995, towards the end of Bosnia's 1992-95 war, Bosnian Serb forces swept into the eastern Srebrenica enclave, a U.N.-designated "safe heaven". There they took 8,000 Muslim men and boys and executed them in the days that followed, dumping their bodies into pits in the surrounding forests.
