A three-day peace march to commemorate the 26th anniversary of the genocide in Srebrenica kicked off in Bosnia and Herzegovina on Thursday.
President of the Peace March Subcommittee, Zulfo Salihovic, said approximately 3,000 people are participating in the 17th march this year.
Salihovic said participants from other countries and Turks made up the largest group of participants.
“Besides a large number of Turks, we also have participants from the US, Italy, and the Sandzak region of Serbia,” said Salihovic.
Traditionally, thousands of people from all over the world come to the Bosnian town of Nezuk every year to participate in the march.
