A search for a possible wartime mass grave after a search using ground-penetrating radar equipment in the Kosovo village of Kishnica has failed to register the presence of human remains.

An excavation in the village of Kishnica in the Gracanica municipality, launched after searches last year using ground-penetrating radar equipment, has found no human remains from the 1998-99 war, Kosovo’s Missing Persons Commission told BIRN.

In August last year, a UN expert team used ground-penetrating radar equipment in a five-day search at three locations in Kosovo – in the village of Bukosh in the Vushtrri/Vuciterna municipality, the village of Uglar in the Gjilan/Gnjilane municipality, and in Kishinca.

Searches were also carried out by the UN team in Jeloviste and Kisevac, near Raska in Serbia.

The data recordings were sent to an expert in Argentina for analysis and the conclusions were given to Kosovo and Serbia last month.
