Serb forces slaughtered around 700 Bosniak civlians in Karakaj in 1992. Officials say they have found a mass grave that apparently contains at least 42 bodies of what may be the earliest victims of the Bosnian war, Bosniaks (Bosnian Muslims) killed during the April 1992 Serb attack on Zvornik. Forensic experts turned up the first remains at the edge of a swamp and have so far exhumed 20 bodies. Some 30,000 people went missing in Bosnia during the 1992-95 war and over the years experts have been finding their bodies in mass graves throughout the country.
