Today the Missing Persons Institute (MPI) of Bosnia and Herzegovina continues its search for the bodies of victims that were recently found in mass graves at the Tomasica site near Prijedor (Bosnia).  Head of the Regional Office of the MPI of Bosnia and Herzegovina said that the teams found the mostly complete skeleton remains of one female last Thursday.

The MPI team believes that this is the largest massive grave from the Bosnian War found in the last ten years in northwestern Bosnia.  It’s believed to contain prisoners of two Prijedor concentration camps.  So far the MPI of Bosnia and Herzegovina has unearthed and identified 2,082 victims of Prijedor, but are still looking for an estimated 1,200 missing Bosniak and Croatian victims.
