Bosnia Serb forces killed an estimated 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys following the fall of Srebrenica. In an attempt to hide the evidence of these murders, Bosnian Serb authorities later moved many bodies to secondary or even tertiary mass grave sites. In the process, the remains of bodies were separated and sometimes mixed together, making the subsequent work of international and national authorities to identify them extremely difficult.
