Monument to children killed in Homeland War unveiled

A monument to the 402 girls and boys killed during the 1991-95 Homeland War was unveiled in Slavonski Brod on Saturday, the eastern town chosen for its location because 28 local children were killed.

It took 12 years to build a national monument to the children killed in the war and Mayor Mirko Duspara said the unveiling was not the end of the obligation to them. "After so many years, nobody has yet been held to account for the death of 28 girls and boys," he said.

A government delegation attended the unveiling, led by First Deputy Prime Minister Tomislav Karamarko, as did the parliament speaker's envoy Pero Cosic, among others.
