Daily: Serbia Makes a List of Victims of NATO Bombing

Serbia could soon set up a commission that, more than twenty years after the end of the war, will determine the exact death toll during the 1999 NATO bombing of the then Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, daily Vecernje Novosti writes on Wednesday.

According to the daily, the commission will collect data from local police stations, military departments, cemeteries and church parishes, and the ministries of defense and interior, secret services, local governments, and provincial authorities will be included as well.

The daily states that the initiative came from Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.

At the moment, it is unknown how many people died in the 1999 war, and it is estimated that about 750 members of the army and police and about 2,500 civilians were killed, while about 6,000 were wounded.
