COPYRIGHT: I was granted permission from the copyright holder, Mr. Tony Birtley, to display his remarkable ABC News reporting from Srebrenica on my YouTube channel for educational purposes. In 1993, Tony was badly wounded reporting from Srebrenica where he informed the world of what was happening to the besieged Bosniaks. To protect his work, I disabled the option to download, embed and play this video on external sites.
DESCRIPTION: There was a constant and serious shortage of food in pre-genocide Srebrenica causing starvation to peak in the winter of 1992/1993. Many Bosniak refugees, particularly women and children, were in an extremely emaciated state due to malnutrition and many of them died from starvation.
A very rare footage you are about to see shows just how desperate the humanitarian situation was in Srebrenica in March 1993, more than two years before the Srebrenica genocide. What follows is a news programme broadcast by ABC News with footage shot by Tony Birtley, a British reporter, showing a desperate situation in Srebrenica in March 1993.
