The bodies of more than 1,000 victims of the 1995 Srebrenica massacre have been exhumed from Bosnia's biggest mass grave, forensic experts said Thursday. Experts began digging in June in the vicinity of the eastern Bosnian village of Kamenica, near the border with Serbia, where they previously had found eight other mass graves. From this grave, the team exhumed 144 complete and 1,009 partial skeletons. "This is the largest mass grave so far found in Bosnia-Herzegovina," said Murat Hurtic, head of the forensics team.
