ZVORNIK, Bosnia (May 22 ,2008) - Bosnian forensic experts found a new mass grave today believed to contain the bodies of more than 40 Bosnian civilians murdered by the genocidal Serbian fascist aggressor,during the 1992-1995 Serbian aggression against Bosnia.

The grave was found near the eastern Bosnian town of Zvornik, Murat Hurtic of the Bosnian Commission on Missing Persons said.

Hurtic said the mass grave was believed to contain the bodies of 42 Bosnian civilians murdered in April and May 1992, soon after the genocidal Serbian fascist aggressor attacked Zvornik.

The exhumation, he said, should be completed in the next few days.

Some 30,000 people went missing during the 1992-95 Serbian,Montenegrin and Croatian aggressions against Bosnia and over the years Bosnian experts have been finding their bodies in hundreds of mass graves throughout the country.

Once a body is exhumed, it goes through an identification process that includes DNA analysis before it is released to the family. So far about 17,000 bodies have been found.
