SJEMEC, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Sept. 20 (UPI) -- A mass grave was discovered in Bosnia, which officials said may contain the remains of Bosniak civilians.

The grave was found Wednesday in Sjemec near Rogatica by investigators from the Bosnia-Herzegovina Missing Persons Institute, as well as the Federal Police Administration, Tanjug news agency reported.

Lejla Cengic, spokeswoman for the institute, said investigators are not yet sure how many people are buried in the grave, but said the supposed Bosnians were killed during the Bosnian War in the Rogatica and Visegrad areas.

Cengic said the grave was found under "an artificially created body of water."

The Bosnia-Herzegovina Court is expected to grant permission for exhumation, Cengic said.
