Yesterday was the 14th anniversary of the UN marked genocide of Bosnian Muslims. Eight thousand – mostly men and boys – were massacred in Srebrenica, Bosnia-Hercegovina, by Bosnian Serb forces, despite the area having been declared a UN safe haven.
Bosnian families laid to rest the remains of 534 newly identified victims. The US ambassador to the country said in the latest burial ceremony: “The world failed to act, failed to protect the innocent of Srebrenica.”
That’s why we must remember and never forget.
