The cold-blooded killings, which occurred in the village of Trnovo after the fall of the eastern enclave of Srebrenica, were video-taped by the Scorpions, who can be seen laughing, smoking and taunting their

captives.The six Bosniak men and boys were forced to lie down with their hands tied before being shot in the back by their captors. Two of the victims were 17, while the others were in their 20s and 30s.

The footage circulated for a decade among "Scorpions" and Serb nationalist circles and could even be rented in video clubs in the small town of Sid, some 60 miles west of Belgrade, where most of paramilitaries in the video lived.

The footage was aired on most television stations in the region, shocking people across the Balkans.

The video was deemed particularly shocking in Serbia, where many still believed the Milosević-era propaganda that the massacre in 1995 never happened. In Bosnia, it led to the identification of at least one victim by his family, who saw the video on television.

The victims were identified as: Safet Fejzić (17), Azmir Alispahić (17), Sidik Salkić (36), Smail Ibrahimović (35), Dino Salihović (18) and Juso Delić (25).
