Visegrad - Thousands have gathered in the eastern Bosnian town of Visegrad to bury the remains of 66 Muslim Bosnians killed and thrown into the river by Bosnian Serb forces at the start of the country's 1992-95 war.

The victims' remains were discovered two years ago, when a manmade lake that divides Bosnia and Serbia was partially drained for the maintenance of a dam.

They were identified through DNA analysis and buried on Saturday at a cemetery in Visegrad.

Thousands of non-Serb civilians from the area were rounded up and killed and their bodies dumped into the Drina River from Ottoman-era bridge in Visegrad or buried in mass graves around the town.
