After 19 years, Hajrija Selimovic will finally have a place to mourn her family Friday.The three were among the 8,000 Muslim men and boys killed when Serb forces overran the eastern Bosnian town of Srebrenica on July 11, 1995 . The remains of Srebrenica victims are still being found in mass graves and identified using DNA technology. This year, Selimovic's two sons will be among the 175 newly identified victims laid to rest, joining 6,066 others including their father Hasan, who was found in 2001 but buried only last year. The eastern, Muslim-majority town of Srebrenica was a U.N.-protected area besieged by Serb forces throughout Bosnia's 1992-95 war.It has identified 14,600 sets of remains in Bosnia, including those of some 7,000 victims of the Srebrenica massacre.This year, the families of some 500 identified victims have decided not to accept just two or three bones.
