Hundreds of people turned out in Sarajevo's main street on Wednesday to pay respect to 175 victims of the Srebrenica massacre — Europe's worst since World War II — as a truck carried their coffins to a final resting place.

The remains of the men and boys, found in mass graves and identified through DNA analysis, will be buried in the Bosnian town on Friday, the 19th anniversary of the massacre, next to 6,066 previously found victims.
