Srebrenica Memorial Anger Linked To One Word: Genocide
The fact that Serbia, and other countries, don't recognize the Srebrenica massacre as a genocide might've led to violence at 20th anniversary event.By Christian Bryant | July 11, 2015
This isn't the scene you would expect at an event commemorating the dead.
A crowd of Bosnian Muslims, known as Bosniaks, attending the 20th anniversary of the massacre in Srebrenica threw rocks and water bottles at Serbian Prime Minister Aleksander Vucic. His aides quickly whisked him away and the Serbian government called the attack an assassination attempt.
But it's what they're not calling the Srebrenica massacre that could've led to that scene at the memorial Saturday.
