Human remains of at least three people discovered in a targeted alleged mass grave near Gjakovica/Gjakova, may belong to Kosovo Serbs who were killed during the war, Kosovo TV channel KTV has learned.

Tarja Formisto, Deputy Director of EULEX's Department of Forensic Medicine (DFM) confirmed to KTV that they have exhumed remains of three peoples who are suspected to have been killed during Kosovo war in 1998-99.

“The first indications are that the remains belong to victims killed during the last war in Kosovo. Their ethnicity and other details will be set after the DNA analysis. Currently, we have discovered three bodies and this is all what I can confirm for the time being, the excavation is ongoing and I cannot make further comments.
