DID YOU KNOW?  -- Three years before the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide, Serbs torched Bosniak villages and killed at least 3,166 Bosniaks around Srebrenica. In 1993, the UN described the besieged situation in Srebrenica as a "slow-motion process of genocide." In July 1995, Serbs forcibly expelled 25,000 Bosniaks, brutally raped many women and girls, and systematically killed 8,000+ men and boys (DNA confirmed).

Two new mass graves containing the bodies of Bosnian Muslims who were killed during the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina have been discovered in the east of the country, Bosnia's Institute for Missing Persons (INO) reported.

The mass graves were discovered on Thursday and Friday on Mount Romanija in Sokolac municipality and near Sekovici, east of Tuzla.

The first mass grave, near the village of Becari in Sokolac municipality, contains the bodies of Bosnian Muslims from surrounding villages, killed at the beginning of the 1992-1995 war.

The mass grave near the village of Bisina in Sekovici municipality, east of Tuzla, is in fact a natural cave that is more than 30 metres deep. It is filled with the remains of Bosnian Muslims from Srebrenica killed in the summer of 1995.

The 1995 Srebrenica genocide resulted in ethnic cleansing of 25,000-30,000 people, including summary killings of at least 8,372 Bosniaks - men, boys, and children.
