On April 17, the human remains of 21 war victims that were found in a mass grave in Serbia from the 1998-1999 war with Kosovo, were finally put to rest. The remains were found in a mass grave, along with 54 victims, under a newly built road in Serbia, near the border with Kosovo. The victims, ethnic Albanians from Kosovo, were allegedly killed by Serbian security forces during the war in Kosovo.
The reburial took place in the village of Cikatova in central Kosovo where the massacre occurred, exactly 16 years later. Out of the 21 victims, 19 came from the Morina family. Family members and hundreds of locals from the village, as well as the president and other government and religious officials, attended the reburial.
“Now we have the real place, we have the bodies in the grave,” said one member of the Morina family after burying his father’s remains.
