“Bosnians gathered on Monday to commemorate the 24th anniversary of the 1994 Markale massacre, which took the lives of 68 people and injured nearly 150.

The Markale marketplace shelling was one of the biggest massacres committed during the siege of Sarajevo between April 1992 and December 1995.

During the gathering, a crowd including family members of the victims as well as survivors paid tribute, laid wreaths, and prayed for the dead.

The ceremony was also attended by Sarajevo Canton Prime Minister Elmedin Konakovic, Bosnian Veterans Affairs Minister Salko Bukv-arevic, and other officials.

Bukvarevic stressed that during the war, Bosnia and Herzegovina and its people faced the threat of extermination.” (The Frontier Post)
