Bombs Found at Srebrenica Memorial

Bosnian Serb police have found several bombs at a memorial honoring the victims of the 1995 Srebrenica massacre, just days before the 10th anniversary of the killings.

Police Tuesday said about 35 kilograms of explosives were found at the memorial in Potocari, outside Srebrenica

They say the area has been sealed off, and sniffer dogs have been sent to scour for more explosives.

Police officials also say they have identified and are working on the arrest of several suspects.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to gather in Potocari Monday to commemorate the 10th anniversary the Srebrenica massacre.

Over several days in 1995, Serb forces took away and killed some 8,000 Muslim men and boys after capturing the Srebrenica enclave in eastern Bosnia-Herzegovina. Thousands of bodies have since been recovered from mass graves.
