The mosque's reopening, which followed a restoration completed with the financial assistance of Bosnians, marked the 19th anniversary of the massacre that killed more than 8,000 Bosnians. During the war in Bosnia, Srebrenica, the northeast of the country was declared a safe zone by United Nations, but was captured by Serbian troops commanded by Gen. Ratko Mladic on July 11, 1995. The UN troops failed to protect the people who had gathered there and abandoned the area. More than 8,000 Bosnian men and boys were massacred in forests, fields, factories and warehouses. The bodies of the victims were buried in various mass graves across the country, and some are still being discovered and identified today.
