20 bodies found in Northwest Bosnia

SARAJEVO, Jun 25, 2000 -- (AFP) The Muslim-led commission for missing persons has found the remains of 20 people in the Bosanska Krupa region of northwest Bosnia, national television said Friday.

The bodies, thought to be those of Muslims and Croats held in Serb concentration camps during the 1992-1995 war, were found in mass grave near the village of Lisac.

The Serbs kept prisoners of war in the Prijedor, Omarska, Keraterm and Trnopolje regions, said the report.

Nearly three weeks ago, the commission announced that its workers had found the bodies of 45 Bosnian Muslim civilians near the southeastern town of Foca.
