Officials had expected to recover between 350 and 500 bodies.
Local media reported that other parts of the quarry might also be investigated at a later date. Representatives of UNMIK, the Red Cross and the International Commission for Missing Persons attended the excavation. (Reuters, AP, Tanjug, RTS – 08/06/07)
