SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Nov. 11 (UPI) -- An anonymous tip has led investigators to a mass grave in Bosnia containing more than 100 victims of the infamous Srebrenica massacre.

The site located about 30 miles from the city has yielded numerous skeletons believed to be among the estimated 8,000 Muslims who were marched off to their doom when Serb forces overran Srebrenica in 1995.

The BBC said Saturday the site in Snagovo is the seventh such grave found in the Srebrenica area over the years, and damage to the remains indicated they had probably been dug up fairly recently and moved from their original burial site.

Genocide prosecutors were on the scene and told the BBC the grave had yielded wallets and other clues to the victims' identities.
