The Potocari Memorial cemetery is undergoing preparations for another mass burial on July 11, when 408 newly identified bodies will be put to final rest. Bodies are identified as those belonging to Bosnian Muslim victims, of the offensive undertaken by Bosnian Serbs in July 1995 with the aim to occupy the earlier declared UN safe heaven area of Srebrenica and the surrounding villages. During the offensive more than 8000 Bosnian non-Serbs went missing to be found buried in mass graves, years after the war ended.
