SREBRENICA, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Seventeen years later, Bosnian Muslims are still burying more victims from the Srebrenica massacre.

Tens of thousands flooded into the Bosnian town whose name is now synonymous with genocide for funeral services Wednesday for 520 newly identified victims killed in 1995 by Serb forces.

In a ceremony broadcast live across the country, emotions ran high, the passage of time seemingly not easing the pain of losing loved ones.

In all, some 100,000 people were killed in Bosnia's 1992-95 war.

Here's a gallery of photos from Wednesday's ceremony at Srebrenica.
