Jusic (Camil) Edhem was killed in June 1993 during Bosnian War, says missing persons institute.

Bosnia and Herzegovina identified another person who was killed during the Bosnian War between 1992 and 1995.

The Institute for Missing Persons of Bosnia and Herzegovina said Monday that Jusic (Camil) Edhem was born in 1925 and was killed in the village of Grahovci in Kiseljak municipality in June 1993.

Bones unearthed from a grave in Grahovci in 2023 matched DNA samples taken from Edhem's family.

The Bosnian War was sparked by the break-up of Yugoslavia, which led Bosnia to declare independence in February 1992.

The capital, Sarajevo, came under attack by Bosnian Serb militias in what became the longest siege in modern history, lasting nearly four years.

Between April 1992 and December 1995, an estimated 100,000 people were killed and 2.2 million displaced in Bosnia and as many as 50,000 women, mostly Bosniak, were raped, according to estimates from the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and the UN. -
