Srebrenica probe names officials
Srebrenica massacre grave
Those named in the list are still working in official government positions
The Bosnian Serb government has identified 892 officials suspected of involvement in the Srebrenica massacre of 8,000 Muslims during the Bosnia war.

The list has been passed on to state prosecutors and the office of senior international community representative Paddy Ashdown.

Those named are currently working at various levels of government.

Officials say they hope the move will contribute to restoring a climate of confidence in Bosnia.

An inquiry team was appointed in January to examine whether anyone named in an official inquiry into the Srebrenica atrocities was still employed or associated with the Bosnian government.

Bosnian Serb authorities admitted last year in an official report that Serb forces killed about 8,000 Muslim men when they took control of the town during the 1992-1995 Bosnian conflict.

The government said in a statement that the report "showed its determination and commitment to meet all obligations to completely clarify the July 1995 events in Srebrenica".

It added that it hoped the report would "contribute to creating a climate of confidence in Bosnia".
