Bosnia accused of ignoring sexual violence

Rights group says Bosnian government is not taking care of victims of wartime sexual violence.

    Bosnia-Herzegovina is being urged to honour its commitment to victims of sexual violence during the 1990s war, as human rights group Amnesty International accused the government of neglecting many of the survivors.

    But as the society attempts to move on from the atrocities committed during the three-year war, there are many who are still suffering in silence.

    One rape victim, Enisa Salcinovic, told Al Jazeera that she hoped her testimonies would help those who perpetrated the crimes to face justice.
