Mass grave discovered in Croatia, near the town of Petrinja

A mass grave has been found a few days ago in Croatia, near the town of Petrinja.

Forensic experts have dug out the remains of eight people so far from the mass grave located near the town of Petrinja’s city rubbish dump.

The war veterans deputy minister Ivan Grujic explained that “based on the recovered clothing, it seems that victims were civilians from Petrinja killed in 1991”. It is assumed that the victims were Croats.

The Croatian war veterans minister Predrag Matic, speaking to journalists at the public exhumation, said that there are still 1,768 people missing from the war in Croatia between 1991 and 1995.

“We won’t stop until we have found the last missing person in Croatia”, Matic added.
