A Bosnian Muslim woman cries during the funeral of 33 newly-identified Bosnian Muslims at the Potocari Memorial Center, Srebrenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina, 11 July 2019.

The burial was part of a memorial ceremony to mark the 24th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre on 11 July 2019, considered the worst atrocity of Bosnia’s 1992-95 war.

More than 8,000 Muslim men and boys were executed in the 1995 killing spree after Bosnian Serb forces captured the former Bosnian Muslim enclave in Srebrenica on 11 July 1995.
