SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Hundreds of people have turned out in Sarajevo's main street to pay respects to 35 victims of the Srebrenica massacre 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 Srebrenica on Wednesday, the 23rd anniversary of the massacre, next to 6,575 previously found victims.

As the coffins passed by, shielded by a canvas cloth, some tucked flowers in or caressed the canvas. Others silently prayed as the truck stopped briefly in front of Bosnia's presidency.

Bosnian Serbs overran the majority Muslim town on July 11, 1995, rounding up Srebrenica's Muslims and killing more than 8,000 men and boys. It was Europe's worst massacre since World War II.
