A new mass grave believed to contain the bodies of dozens of Srebrenica massacre victims has been found in northeastern Bosnia, an official said Tuesday. The head of the forensic team, Murat Hurtic, said one of the 1995 massacre's survivors helped find the grave believed to contain "dozens of Srebrenica victims," in Snagovo village, about 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of Srebrenica. Bones from about 15 skeletons could be seen protruding from the earth when bulldozers removed a layer of soil from the top of the grave, Hurtic said. Exhumations will last about two weeks, he added. This is the second mass grave found in the same village. About 100 bodies were found in the first grave in Snagovo, Hurtic said. The bodies in both mass graves were originally buried elsewhere but later moved to the Snagovo location to cover up the crime, he said.
