Bosnian Serbs commemorate their dead

Bosnian Serbs commemorate their dead

Up to 2,000 people have gathered to remember Serbs killed by Bosnian forces during the 1992-95 war in the Srebrenica area, in eastern Bosnia.
Tuesday's ceremony came a day after the commemoration for victims of the 1995 Serb killing of over 8,000 Muslim Bosnians from Srebrenica _ a massacre labeled by the International Court of Justice an act of genocide.
Serbs are bitter because the world honors Muslim victims annually but ignores the commemoration for Serbs a day later.
Serbs kept Bosnians in Srebrenica besieged throughout the 1992-95 war. In return, Bosnians raided the surrounding Serb villages looking for food and weapons. Serbs say 3,267 of their soldiers and civilians were killed in those attacks, two-thirds of them civilians.
