Thousands of people from all over the world set off Saturday on a three-day peace march in Nezuk town near the Bosnian city of Tuzla to commemorate the 22nd anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide.
More than five thousand participants, who began gathering at the town since the early morning hours, will cover a total distance of approximately 100 kilometers (62 miles). The walk is expected to conclude at a cemetery in Potocari, a village in eastern Bosnia-Herzegovina, just northwest of Srebrenica town, where a funeral prayer and burial ceremony will be held for 71 genocide victims.
Participants will travel about 35 km each day to reach Potocari within the scope of the "Peace March" organized for the 13th time this year, and will be spending the nights at designated wooded areas. During the long walk, they will be also given details about the genocide and told of the memories of survivors who took the so-called "Death Road".
