The Bosnian war (1992-1995) was an exceptionally gruesome conflict for journalists. The conditions under which war reporters and war correspondents worked must have made a certain influence on the information they later presented to the public. In order to acquire a better understanding of this problem we chose to concentrate on the Srebrenica genocide. In July 1995 the Bosnian Serbian army, originally a fraction of the army of Yugoslavia, marched into Srebrenica, a small town in eastern Bosnia. The town was occupied by them two years earlier and had since then been a UN safety zone. In spite of that, the Bosnian Serbian army and paramilitaries committed the act of genocide: they separated the men from the women and children and killed them in secret. The women, children and the elderly have been transported out of what then became the Serbian territory.
