The Voice of America News website reports today (July 10, 2012) that Bosnia-Herzegovina marks the 17th anniversary tomorrow (July 11) of the Srebrenica massacre of 8,000 Muslim men and boys at the hands of Bosnian Serb forces.
People from across the nation and elsewhere are gathering near the eastern Bosnian town -- the site of Europe's worst case of mass murder since World War II.
The central event will be the burial of recently identified remains of 520 victims. Organizers expect more than 30,000 people to attend.
Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik and Serbia's new President Tomislav Nikolic call the Srebrenica massacre a "grave crime," but they refuse to call it a "genocide."
