APTOPIX Bosnia Srebrenica
Bosnian workers re-inter human remains in the grave at the memorial center Potocari near Bosnian town of Srebrenica, 140 kms northeast of Sarajevo, on Friday, Dec. 7, 2012. Authorities in Bosnia are opening 98 graves containing incomplete remains of Srebrenica massacre victims to add newly found and identified bones to the graves. Serb troops executed more than 8,000 Muslim Bosniaks after they overran Srebrenica close to the end of Bosnia's 1992-95 war. They dumped their bodies into mass graves but later relocated them with bulldozers in order to hide their crime. Parts of one body are often found in several different mass graves and put together using DNA analysis. They are then laid to rest at a memorial center in Srebrenica with previously discovered parts until a full skeleton comes together. (AP Photo/Amel Emric)
