On April 27, 24 years since the massacre of Meja, political leaders and NGOs honored the memory of the 1,600 missing persons from the Kosovo war.
Kosovo has stepped up exhumations of suspected graves of people who disappeared during the 1998-99 war, amid suggestions from officials that a deal could be reached with Serbia to help find the remaining missing persons.
The Kosovo government said it needs more satellite images of a suspected mass grave site in southern Serbia to determine whether a search for buried bodies that was halted by the Belgrade authorities should continue.
Preliminary excavations have begun at a mine near the town of Sjenica in southern Serbia, where experts are searching for the bodies of people who went missing during the 1998-99 Kosovo war.
On the day commemorating missing persons from the independence war, justice remains sought for the fate of over 1,600 people still missing since 1998-1999.
