Unhappy Sad really sad.

VISOKO, Bosnia-Herzegovina - The remains of 107 victims of Europe's worst massacre since World War II were transferred Thursday for reburial later this week in a ceremony presided by former President Clinton.

Up to 8,000 Muslims, mostly boys and men, were killed in Srebrenica in July 1995 by Bosnian Serb troops, who had overrun the eastern town, then a U.N.-protected zone. The killings came just months before the end of Bosnia's 1992-95 war between local Serbs, Muslims and Croats.

The victims will be buried on Saturday at a new part of the cemetery in the nearby town of Potocari during the opening of a memorial center.

The cemetery and memorial center are located in a field where most of the killings took place more than eight years ago. The bodies were dumped in mass graves across eastern Bosnia and are still being discovered. So far, more than 5,000 Srebrenica victims have been exhumed.

Hava Civic, 65, cried as a refrigerated truck carrying the 107 remains in caskets left a DNA identification center Thursday morning in the central town of Visoko to begin the four-hour journey to Srebrenica.

"I lost eight family members, including my husband, son and brother" Civic said, wiping tears from her face.

Only her brother has been found so far and will be buried at Saturday's ceremony.

Earlier this year, a total of 882 bodies were buried in two ceremonies at the Potocari cemetery near Srebrenica.

Srebrenica survivors asked Clinton to officiate at the opening because of his role in ending the country's bloodshed when he brought the leaders of the three warring sides together in Dayton, Ohio, to negotiate a peace agreement.

The Dayton peace agreement ended the war that claimed about 250,000 lives and left around 20,000 missing and presumed dead. The remains of around 18,000 victims from different ethnic groups have been exhumed from more than 300 mass graves across the country.

Bill Clinton is coming to Bosnia on September 20,.
