    The war in Bosnia and Herzegovina ended 25 years ago but the quest for justice continues with nearly 600 people facing war crimes charges.

    Following the closure of the war crimes tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague, Bosnian courts have taken over the process.

    Ahmici is a small village where 116 Muslim men, women and children killed by Bosnian Croat forces, one of the war’s darkest atrocities.

    Some 150 Bosnian Croats are said to have taken part in the Ahmici attack. Ten were convicted but three were later acquitted on appeal and are back living in the area.

    Al Jazeera’s Tony Birtley reports from Ahmici in central Bosnia, where survivors say many of the guilty are still walking free.

    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.
