Remains of Kosovo Albanian war victims found in Serbia27 May 2014 | 16:30 | FOCUS News Agency
Since the exhumation began at the Rudnica quarry near the southwestern town of Raska in April, "the remains of 21 persons have been found," Serbia's commission for missing persons said in a statement.
"DNA analysis has shown that 17 of them were Kosovo Albanians, while the remains of four more persons are still being identified," it added.
The exhumation at Rudnica was ordered after human remains were discovered in the area in December after more than three years of searching the site.
War crimes investigators have said the quarry was one of the sites where Serbian forces under then-strongman Slobodan Milosevic moved the remains of Kosovo civilians at the end of the 1998-1999 conflict, reburying them in Serbia in a bid to hide their crimes.
Before the exhumation began, Serbia's war crimes prosecutor Vladimir Vukcevic told AFP that the grave might contain the remains of as many as 250 Kosovo Albanians.
If confirmed, it could be the largest mass grave found in Serbia.
