A tearful day on this Bosnian hillside. The crowd mourns 520 newly identified victims of the Srebrenica massacre. More than 8000 mostly male Bosnian Muslims were killed when Bosnian Serb forces over-ran the U.N.-protected enclave in 1995. The newly identified remains -- many of them found in mass graves -- will be reburied during a ceremony Wednesday. (SOUNDBITE) (Bosnian) MURTIC HARIJA, WOMAN WHO LOST FAMILY MEMBERS, SAYING: "I don't even know the number of family members I have buried so far. And shame on those who did it." In Sarajevo, bystanders also pray for the victims as former Bosnian Serb leaders stand trial in the Hague, accused of crimes during the Bosnian War. Former Serbian president Slobodan Milosevic was also put on trial, but died before a verdict was reached. An international commission has so far identified more than 7000 victims.
