BANJA LUKA -- The village of Kravice, in eastern Bosnia, held on Wednesday a memorial service to mark 18 years since the murder of 49 of its villagers.
The Bosnian Muslim forces commanded by Naser Orić killed the Serbs on Orthodox Christmas morning, January 7, 1993.

80 more were injured and seven are still listed as missing. The attackers torched 688 Serb homes and over 200 other facilities. The massacre left 101 children without one or both parents.

The memorial today was followed by a commemoration of some 3,400 Serbs who were killed in the eastern Bosnia region during the 1992-95 war.

The ceremonies were attended by many local officials and organizations of war veterans and families of those killed, imprisoned or gone missing during the war.

Kravica residents expressed grief for their lost loved ones and indignation over the fact that no one has been punished for the crime during the past 18 years.
