Bosnians remember massacre of relative
KORICANSKE STIJENE, Bosnia-Herzegovina -- Hundreds of Bosnians whose relatives were shot and pushed into a steep ravine during the country's war returned to the scene Wednesday to mark the 10th anniversary of the massacre.
The 1992-1995 war was just a few months old when Bosnian Serb police forces and paramilitary troops executed 253 non-Serb men by shooting them and pushing them -- some still alive -- off a cliff near Travnik, a town 40 miles northwest of Sarajevo.
The victims had been prisoners in the notorious Bosnian Serb-run concentration camps Omarska, Keraterm and Trnopolje. They had been told they would be exchanged for Serb war prisoners. Only 12 men are known to have survived.
On Wednesday, some 500 relatives of the victims tossed carnations off the cliff, which overlooks a 1,100-foot-deep ravine.
The Bosnian war killed 200,000 people. Another 20,000 remain missing and are presumed dead.
