Habiba Masic, 56, reacts moments after receiving a phone call from a DNA lab informing her that her two sons, killed in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre in Bosnia, have been identified, in Tuzla, 140 kms north of Sarajevo, on Tuesday, Feb 15, 2011. Three years ago experts found parts of one of her boys in a mass grave but DNA analysis could not determine which one it was until the other was found. On Tuesday, the lab informed Masic that her other son's remains had also been found and that both were now identified. Over 8,000 Muslim Bosniak men and boys were systematically executed after Serb forces overran the east Bosnian town of Srebrenica by the end of the 1992-95 war. Their bodies were thrown into mass graves but as the crime became known the perpetrators tried to hide the evidence by relocating victims' remains using heavy machinery, and fragments of the dismembered bodies are often found at several sites. less
