- Story Text: INTRO: Thousands of Bosnian Serbs have shown their support for their leader Radovan Karadzic and army commander Ratko Mladic in a rally in the north Bosnian town of Modrica.
------------------------------------------------------------------- The crowd of supporters gathered in the main town's square on Wednesday (May 29), carrying photographs of Bosnian Serb "president" Radovan Karadzic and his military commander Ratko Mladic, Serbian flags and banners, saying "Serb people has the right to have its president", "Karadzic represents us", "Only unity saves the Serbs", "The Hague tribunal prosecutes the serb nation".
Karadzic and Mladic have been indicted by the Hague tribunal for war crimes in the war in Bosnia.
Their extradition to the Tribunal is one of the main obstacles in the implementation of the Dayton peace agreement.
The Bosnia war crimes investigating team began the second stage of their investigation of suspected mass grave sites, finding the remains of one body and several body parts on Wednesday (May 29).
The team began investigating a site at Cerska, 25 kilometres north-west of Srebrenica.
Head of the forensic team, John Gurnes, confirmed they has found a corpse and then proceeded to describe various body parts found at three areas within the site.
