  • Nedzad Avdic was shot four times and left to die, but survived the Srebrenica massacre in Bosnia in 1995.

    He told Sky News about the time him and others were taken away in trucks, and then taken in turns to be killed by an execution squad.

    When his turn came he says he was taken to the side of a mass grave – he knew it was his time to die.

    Thinking of his mother and how she would never know where he ended up, he said he just wanted to die quickly, with no pain.

    In This Story: Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Bosnia and Herzegovina, sometimes called Bosnia–Herzegovina and often known informally as Bosnia, is a country in South and Southeast Europe, located within the Balkans. Sarajevo is the capital and largest city.

    Bosnia and Herzegovina is bordered by Serbia to the east, Montenegro to the southeast, and Croatia to the north and southwest. It is not entirely landlocked; to the south it has a narrow coast on the Adriatic Sea, which is about 20 kilometres (12 miles) long and surrounds the town of Neum.

    The inland Bosnia region has a moderate continental climate, with hot summers and cold, snowy winters. In the central and eastern interior of the country the geography is mountainous, in the northwest moderately hilly, and in the northeast predominantly flatland. The smaller southern region, Herzegovina, has a Mediterranean climate and mostly mountainous topography.
