Thousands of people from across Bosnia and abroad gathered in Srebrenica on Tuesday for an annual ritual commemorating the 1995 massacre in the eastern city.
The ritual also provided an opportunity to give dignified burials to victims exhumed from mass graves and recently identified through DNA analysis.

Will be included. The victims of the massacre have already been re-buried there.
Relatives of victims can only bury the partial remains of their loved ones as they are usually found scattered over several different mass graves, sometimes miles apart. Such was the case with Mirsda Mardzic, who was due to bury her father on Tuesday.
