In the Western Balkans, 70% of those who went missing in the wars of the 1990s have been identified, the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) reported on Sunday, on the occasion of International Day of the Disappeared.

The mortal remains of some 29,000 persons have been found and their identities have been established, and all this has been made possible due to the use of advanced scientific methods such as DNA analysis and owing to the cooperation of investigating and prosecutorial authorities as well as forensic experts.

The fate of about 11,000 people who disappeared in the 1990s has not yet been established.

In Bosnia alone, 7,500 war victims are still on lists of people who went missing in the 1992-1995 war.
