Press Release: 15th Anniversary of US Recognition of Bosnian Independence and Sovereignty

I apologize for the three-day delay in posting this press release from the website of the Bosniak American Advisory Council for Bosnia and Herzegovina:

April 7, 1992: United States recognition of B-H's Independence

EDIT:

Another recent press release I neglected to pass along:

Commemorating the Seige of Sarajevo

Kirk, re the commemoration of the Siege of Sarajevo, your visitors (particularly the Bosnian speakers - it helps!) might be interested in this clip showing the commemorative event organised by GfbV around the repainting of the Sarajevo Rose at Ferhadija Street, as part of the Geneocide Prevention Project's marking of April as Genocide Prevention Month.

Today is the anniversary of 74 Muslim children that were massacred in front of Srebrenica's elementary school in 1993, long before Srebrenica genocide occured. More than 150 children were seriously injured. This crime was perpetrated by militatirized Serbs from villages around Srebrenica. I will have mega-update of my blog tommorow. Let us not forget.

Thanks Dan for continuing to remind us of the massacre of children inflicted by the brave artillery of the Bosnian Serb Army during what was assumed to be a period of truce.
