At a ceremony to mark the International Day of the Disappeared, Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti called on Serbia to open up its state archives to reveal where the remaining wartime missing persons are buried.
White roses were thrown from the Old Bridge in the town of Mostar on the International Day of the Disappeared in tribute to around 7,600 people who went missing during the Bosnian war and have yet to be found.
Ahead of the anniversary of the 1992 killings of around 200 Bosniaks and Croats at the Koricani Cliffs on Bosnia’s Mount Vlasic, relatives said they hope the bodies of the remaining victims will eventually be found.
Ruling Vetevendosje party MP Arbereshe Kryeziu Hyseni was criticised for saying that finding ethnic Albanian missing persons from the Kosovo war should be prioritised over looking for Serbs who disappeared.
Aleksandar Vucic said that 11 bodies of Kosovo Albanians, believed to be war victims, have been exhumed from a mass grave in Kizevak near the southern town of Raska, and denied that Serbia was seeking to conceal them.
