The remains of about 20 victims from Bosnia´s 1990s civil war, most likely Bosnian Muslims, have been exhumed from two newly-discovered mass graves, the Missing Persons Institute said Wednesday.

One of the graves was discovered in the mountainous area of Koricanske Stijene in central Bosnia, where more than 200 civilian men were executed by Serb forces in August 1992 following their eviction from a northwestern region.

It marked one of the most brutal episodes in the inter-ethnic conflict, which lasted from 1992 to 1995 and left around 100,000 people dead.

“Since the beginning of the exhumation at Koricanske Stijene on September 7, about 30 clusters of human bones have been exhumed, essentially incomplete skeletons,” said Lejla Cengic, a spokeswoman for the institute.

Five previous exhumations in the same area, between 2003 and 2013, recovered the remains of 117 victims and the search is still ongoing for 98 others, Cengic said.

The second mass grave was uncovered in the eastern region of Vlasenica.

According to the country´s victims´ associations, 2,600 Bosnian Muslims from Vlasenica were killed during the conflict.
