Serbian church near massacre site opposed

Families of victims of 1995 Srebrenica genocide voice opposition to building of Orthodox church.

    Mothers of Srebrenica massacre victims have spoken of their heartache over the construction of a church near mass graves.

    The US has joined calls for the Serbian Orthodox church to be moved away from the graves holding victims of the 1995 Bosnian War killings.

    Despite this, construction, about 30 metres from where the remains were found, is still going ahead.
