The names of the victims of the Srebrenica massacre

Today starts in The Hague the trial against Ratko Mladic, accused of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. As a former bosnian serb army commander, he is accused to be the responsible of the Srebrenica massacre: more than 8.000 bosniaks, especially men and boys, were killed… Mladic is often referred by the media as the “butcher of Bosnia”.
