Four years later, Emir Mujkic returned to the same meadow where he and dozens of other Muslim men were herded into a rust-red bus by Serbs, who then methodically blew it apart with anti-tank rockets.All that remains of the bus is a charred shell, a grisly memorial to the dead of Sokolina. Every window is missing, and rusting bullet holes riddle the metal sides.

Mujkic, as a principal witness, guided diggers and forensic experts to the site Monday, where 47 bodies were exhumed from the June 14, 1992, massacre for autopsy and reburial by family members.
