(AP) - Senior forensic anthropologist of the Bosnia-based International Commission for Missing Persons, Cheryl Katzmarzyk, shows a group of Iraqi experts how victims whose bones were found in several mass graves are put back together at the Commission’s department in the northern Bosnian town of Lukavac, 72 kms north of Bosnian capital of Sarajevo, on Tuesday,Oct.6, 2009. In Bosnia the killers excavated the mass graves in which they originally threw their victims and reburied them elsewhere to hide the crime. They used bulldozers which cut the remains in two or three parts so experts now keep finding a mix of bones in graves and have to send almost each for DNA processing in order to put skeletons together like jigsaw puzzles. Officials in Baghdad estimate that 350,000 human remains are hidden in mass graves throughout the country. Human rights groups say it could be close to a million.(AP Photo/Amel Emric) -
