Woman's search for bodies of husband and brother

As forensic teams continue to uncover bodies in a mass grave in northern Bosnia, one woman has said that she is still waiting for the bodies of her brother and husband.

Nasiha Klipic told ITV News: "I have come to this cemetery for many years and I see each and every one of these buried people as my brothers – as my family.

"But I would feel a lot better if my brother and my husband finally found their final resting place here."

However, she said that even if the bodies of her relatives were found she would not rest until all those responsible were held to account.

"It would not be the end for me, the end for me would be when all the war criminals are arrested.

"I will not stop until the day I die and I raise my children not to stop until the day they die, until all the war criminals are arrested. Nothing less than that would be the end for me."

It is hoped further evidence found at the huge grave site could help the trials of Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic, who are currently facing charged at The Hague.
