A de-mining team checks a reburial grave before exhumation. The International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia reburied many of the bodies from investigations in 'graveyards of the unidentified'. Some 3,800 people are still missing in relation to the former armed conflict in Kosovo. Bereft families continue to seek information about the fate of their relatives. Forensic scientists helping to identify remains are hindered by the fact that many corpses are incomplete, and often the remains of a number of people are buried together.
