Investigators looking for mass grave in Medvedja

Representatives of missing persons commissions from Belgrade and Pristina started investigating the grounds in the village of Svirce.

The village is the suspected location of a mass grave containing bodies of Albanians killed in 1999, said Mayor of Medvedja Slobodan Draskovic.

He told Tanjug that so far they are just going over the grounds and trying to locate the sites where the grave might be located.

"Representatives of EULEX and the Red Cross are also in the field. They are scanning the grounds at a location known as Kapija (the Gate) along the administrative line with Kosovo, more precisely the area between Medvedja and the municipality of Kosovska Kamenica," said Draskovic.

This is the second time in the last two years that representatives of missing persons commissions and international organizations have searched Medvedja for possible mass graves.

Excavations carried out in the village of Sijarina in September 2011 did not yield any findings.
