US Ambassador in BiH, Michael Murphy, paid his respects to the victims of the Kazani Pit Killings near Sarajevo at the site where civilians, mostly ethnic Serbs, were killed by members of the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina between 1992 and 1993.

“The 1992-1995 war in BiH was a terrible tragedy. That is why it is the duty of today’s leaders to promote reconciliation, hold perpetrators of crimes accountable, and acknowledge and honour the victims. Recently, I paid my respects to the victims at Kazani,” he said.

“It is a credit to the leaders of Sarajevo that they erected a memorial to them; however, reconciliation requires acknowledging all of the past’s difficult truths,” he said, arguing that the memorial is incomplete without all the names of the victims’ names “and a clear, forthright acknowledgement of the crime’s perpetrators.”

“Musan Topalovic Caco, commander of the Tenth Mountain Brigade of the Army of the Republic of BiH, ordered the Kazani murder. I look forward to the day when the Kazani memorial reflects this fact,” he said.
