There must be no impunity for sexual crimes committed in war - that's the warning from the EU's ambassador to Bosnia. It comes as the country struggles to deal with the legacy of mass rape. According to human rights groups as many as twenty thousand women were raped in the early nineties, often at camps set up for that purpose. BBC's Special Correspondent Fergal Keane reports now from the town of Visegrad. His report contains some distressing images from the start.

When something is presented by BBC you know it's not the full truth and you know they have a certain angle. I don't doubt all involved suffered and pretty sure they all commited attrocities. I also know BBC is NEVER without an agenda.
Bosnian and Bosniak history explained: Bosniaks where heretics before turks arrived on balkan, Bosnia was kingdom back then. They where not christians, Bosnia and Bosniaks as a name comes from the illyrian name for running water(Bosona) and is older than islam and christianity. Recent genetic tests shows that the haplogroups of Bosniaks can be tracked at least 21000 years on balkans making Bosniaks a very old people that originated on balkan many thousands years ago.
Oh Muslim brothers and sisters.... Teach you kids how to shoot at the heads of nonmuslim people or they will face the same fate as Bosnian Muslims faced it... Teach them to show no mercy if they have to survive or defend their community. Turn these nonmuslims into an examples by doing the same to them every time they wish to fight... No more time to stay good or think bookish things the nonmuslims teach us but always does the opposite to what they teach our kids... Kill them where ever you find them but excluding kids.
US soldiers had their own rape hotel in Iraq. It was called Abu Ghraib. These crimes need to be punished, but unfortunately only those who are militarily weak get punished.
The Final analysis: The True Nature of what mankind calls GOD, Allah, Buddha, Supreme Being, etc. It may sound like Metaphysics, Electro/Magnetic Forces, but to put it simply as Thought Energy that stirs the Firmament into motion just to make it comprehensible will suffice, to explain how this Energy acts and reacts on the Nature of Things (Matter).
Events called History, Religions or the records of Mankind, the different Races and the conflicts come about because of not having the proper thought process, in other words not following the Word/Thought of GOD.
The Prime Mover or Thought if violated will self correct and if thought of Mankind drifts away from the Prime Thought, by thought will it be corrected.
So leaving out the drift away, so-called recorded history and to give only the Prime Thought the Reality, Man Kinds thoughts are filled with only one thought now from The Devine Thought called the Judgment; mankind must destroy false thoughts even If that means the destruction of Mankind.
Man Kind has drifted so far away from Prime Thought that Death becomes the solution, by wars, hate, and the destruction of the Garden of Eden aka Planet Earth. This is the Prime Nature of Thought, The Energy/Metaphysics of Nature, that mankind must follow for the Judgment to be fore filled. Only The Prime Thought "WILL" win in the END. So under/inner/overstand what you are thinking...
Muslims were the ones who started the War, they were the ones who started committing war crimes against Serbs first..and here it is BBC ( the one who loves and bumlicks muslims) only showing Serbian Crimes..
It doesn't really matter who started it that is kindergarten playground BS. The only thing that really matters the only ones who really matter are the ones who fight to end this the ones who say enough no more this has got to end
So because of that these woman and girls deserve this.? Thats like saying(IM NOT SUPPORTING THIS STATEMENT !!!)girls deserved to be raped by brown muslims just because white christians attacked their lands.ITS STUPID CRIME IS A CRIME I WOULD KILL MY OWN BROTHER IF I EVER FIND OUT HE DID THIS KIND OF THINGS.
I live in bosnia and the fact that people are so stupid and dont want to admit crimes makes me really mad.It doesn't suprise me how we are still recovering from war when people in charge of our country are not doing anything about problems like this or problems about people leaving bosnia because they dont have jobes.They raise prices but they don't raise payment.And the fact that bosnia recovers from war is sad we are small country and after all these years we are still recovering of course you cant recover from losing your child but you can give the children of today something better but no children learn from young age that in bosnia you cant find job, you are not payed enough and that they should leave to find a better life maybe they should because those who should care dont care enough
This place should be burned to the ground or controlled demolition done with all victims invited. THEN maybe something can be done with the site, but to just have it open as if nothing ever happened is bad form, very disrespectful.
Hey BBC how is this for an idea for another story of yours just so rest of the world can get full story .
Not defending war crime but all need to be made aware that all sides involved prior to or just at beginning of conflict released a lot of criminals who created paramilitaries with purpose of seeding fear into civilian population , acts of those should should not be used to as label to all unless you are doing it purposely and selectively .
The worst part is these women can’t even come forward and talk about their trauma because it’s so taboo in their society. Even kids interviewed said they’d rather see their mothers dead then know that they are victims of rape. The Bosnian government offered reparations to these women and around 100 in TOTAL came forward to collect. These crimes are atrocities but so is sweeping these things under the rug and judging the women who went through it. Rape is not the victims fault.
The history of Balkans and Eastern Europe reminds me of the world in Berserk manga. Just murder, torture, rape and ethnic cleansing. The Turks, Nazis, Commies, nationalists and other extremists have all done some really fucked up shit. Shameful to see people from either side defending their actions.
Maybe they should get the message and get the fuck out of serbia, muslims are not wanted in serbia. How many more have to die or be raped before they leave? It will continue until they leave, they have brought this on themselves
I find it so hard to watch things like this. But I feel like I have to. To learn. The sad thing is that this will definitely happen again in the future. And is happening in places all over the world right now.
And nobody will discuss that albiet the entire conflict centered around ethno-religious boundaries; The religious side of this cannot be ignored. Religion is the greatest evil ever created on earth. These atrocities are not even a spit in the ocean the pure evil some call Religion has caused in the world since the dawn of religious fairy tales. Blame religion, destroy religion, be free from religion.
Saudi Arabia is taking over the world right now. Starting with the US and Bosnia. While everyone was talking about Russia, Isreal and Saudis made a deal. You can have Europe and the US if you give us all Israel's surrounding countries!
Manufactured lies! People sadly die in wars on all sides. This propaganda and lies was created to justify US support for Bosnian Islamic terrorists and Mujahedeen whom the media portrayed as victims when in reality it was the Serbs who were overwhelmingly the real victims.
you dont know somebody untill you know them some where where there are no consequences .we're protected,people dont hurt us and we feel safe but there is no such thing as some body who has no moral problems.were in a socioty that practically wrights some things in the sky,dont be racist,no means no and to and treat others as you'd like to be treated.without these basic things spelled out for us,repeated over and over again and enforced leaguly,socially and relijiously most people and the world would be alot different.there are still serious problems. put people into an envionrment where there are no consequences to doing it but there might be for not doing it,no matter how light is a disaster.If everybody else is doing it you would probably to no matter how horrible. look at the state of the enviornment,we've probably cleared about 30% of the globes forests,then damaged an other 20% MINIMUM! and because everybodies doing it we continue...probably less that 15% is intact.Human lives are bieng lost becuase of the enviornemtnal issues.
Wow BBC propaganda at its finest? Nice to know that BS floats down the thames, yet apart from the packaged deal you have little evidence, if anything, the UN proved far more Serbian woman were raped by your jihadi proxies (investigations that were intentionally stopped - like the organ harvesting investigation).
James Harff of ruder finn revealed all you vile propagandists for what you are - you are not into fact checking but into presenting versions in accordance with your agenda.
If you want a story maybe you could investigate the nearly 3500 Serbs butchered in around Srebrenica, by your so-called unarmed muslim woman and children? (actually the 10th muslim division (12 000 armed men))
Perhaps, you could mention the nearly 6000 Serbs that died of cancer in the 6 months after uk shelling of Lukavica (suburb of Sarajevo) under false pretense.
You could mention, sending the leading british terrorists (the british sas) to shoot Serbian policemen and soldiers in the back and blow up Serbian civilians. But British methods are well known throughout the world against all targetted nations Serbs, Iraqis, Syrians, Libyans....Hopefully, it comes back like a gift that keeps on giving!
Why rehashing all this all of a sudden,and again!?In the Balkan war the people suffered as in other previous,and post wars,that's unfortunately the "human"nature which will again reoccur in the next war!?As long as we so called homo sapiens exist ,so long we will brutalize each other at any given time,and opportunity!!!
Shame on you BBC. We heard that british propaganda is going back to balkans , but at least i tought its not gonna be this obvius. You (british) and U.S. did this. First you provoked states to take independence from yugoslavia, and then you sold them weapons and made those people misareble. But what comes aroud, goes around...
I'm a Scot who lived and worked in BiH throughout the second half of the 90s and heard story after story of almost unimaginable butchery. I fear we have not learned our lesson and such atrocities could happen so close to home again.
I've been to Neum, Bosnia, in 2014. There's a destroyed building there on the water, maybe an old hotel. Did they keep it there as a symbol, a reminder? I don't know why it still even stands.
Peace to all victims of war atrocities.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
