Forensic experts find a new mass grave in eastern Bosnia

Forensic experts said Wednesday they have found a new mass grave in a mine-infested area in the eastern Bosnian town of Rogatica.

Zafer Rascic, head of the forensic team working on the grave, said excavations began on Tuesday and "four bodies were immediately visible." He added that the location is heavily mined and his team managed to reach and exhume only one of the bodies.

"The documents found on the body indicate the man was from Rogatica," Rascis said.

DNA analysis will provide more information, the expert said.

Forensic teams have been discovering mass graves throughout Bosnia for years, collecting remains and extracting DNA from the bone mark to be matched with DNA collected from family members. Once a match is found, the body is returned to the family for burial.

Tens of thousands were killed or went missing during Bosnia's 1992-95 war between the three ethnic groups living here. Most of the victims were Bosniak Muslims.

Experts say that some of the bodies of the more than 20,000 people who remained missing after the war will never be found.
