Know Where He Lies: DNA and the Search forSrebrenica’s Missing

Established at the initiative of U.S. President Clinton in 1996, the
International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) is headquartered
in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. More than 15 years after the war, the
effort to find and identify over 30,000 missing in Bosnia and Herzegovina is
still underway. Through this process, Bosnia and Herzegovina has become a
global leader in the science of identifying human remains using DNA. This
expertise is now used by other countries from Iraq to USA to help identify the
victims of conflict and natural disasters.CSI-in-Bosnia-and-Herzegovina-Chicago
