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).

Not only Srebrenica. Former Serb leaders Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic are on trial for Genocide in other districts across Bosnia-Herzegovina: Bratunac, Foča, Ključ, Kotor Varoš, Prijedor, Sanski Most, Vlasenica and Zvornik. Here is an example what their followers did to Bosniak civilians in Ključ:

Bosniaks Dig Up Mass Grave Site

KRASULJE, Bosnia-Herzegovina — For nearly 3.5 years, a remote forested hillside in central Bosnia has held a secret revealed only now as the red earth gives up pieces of bones and bits of clothing.

Bosnian soldiers are beginning to excavate the first of what officials think is a series of mass graves. Bosnian Prime Minister Haris Silajdzic said Saturday that 540 people were buried around Kljuc after Serbs seized the area in 1992.

All sides in the Bosnian war have been accused of atrocities, but Serbs have been most blamed for mass murders and other crimes in Bosnia. [Note: Serbs were responsible for at least 90 per cent of all war crimes in Bosnia-Herzegovina according to well-documented CIA report.]

Possible mass graves have been identified throughout the war, including suspected sites near eastern Bosniak enclaves recaptured by the Serbs early in the summer.

The government recently recaptured the territory where the new suspected mass graves are located; the front line is only a few miles away.

Dug into a green slope, a pit about three yards across and a foot and a half deep Monday revealed two human thigh bones, a boot, a man’s shoe and decomposing pieces of clothing.

Since excavation began last week at this site, known as Crvena Zemlja, or Red Earth, several skulls and other bones also have been unearthed.

Idriz Boljic, a Bosnian army soldier from the area who was helping excavate the area, said traces of sulfuric acid were found on the remains, apparently intended to destroy them and prevent detection. A dozen empty bottles of acid were found nearby.

Local officials have begun inspecting five such sites around Kljuc.

Light digging only has begun at Crvena Zemlja, a few miles north-west of Kljuc, and a Bosnian government commission is working out details for other excavations.

U.N. officials have had access to the area, but have not commented on what they have been allowed to see. Chris Gunness, a U.N. spokesman in Zagreb, Croatia, said Bosnian authorities told U.N. military observers that there were 40 possible mass grave sites in the area.

Most of them have been identified by Bosniak survivors who are now returning to the area.
