Thousands of mourners silently lined the streets of Sarajevo on Tuesday as three trucks carried the remains of 409 newly identified victims of the 1995 Srebrenica massacre to their final resting place. The convoy was taking the coffins to the small village of Potocari near Srebrenica, where burials will take place on Thursday, the 18th anniversary of the massacre, Europe's worst atrocity since World War II. Along the route, relatives carried pictures and pillowcases with embroidered names of many of the 8,000 Muslim men and boys who were killed by Bosnian Serb forces in Srebrenica in July 1995. The remains of 5,657 victims found in several mass graves have already been buried in Potocari.
