Prijedor residents commemorate massacre

People in Bosnian city have been marking a massacre that took place there in the early 1990s.

    Hava Tatarevic lost six sons and her husband in the Prijedor massacre.

    Twenty-one years later, she is still searching for their remains. She hangs a white sheet out to tell the world that this is the home of a non-Serb.

    Today, it is her choice, but at the beginning of the Bosnian war it was compulsory.

    That is why the Serb authorities came for them.

    Local authorities have repeatedly refused to build a monument to remember the thousands who died there.

    The people of Prijedor and neighbouring areas are peacefully protesting to change this.
