SARAJEVO/THE HAGUE, August 30 (FENA) - In the course of today, in every part of the world, people will disappear. Syria, Libya, Burundi, and Sudan are in the midst of unrest where enforced disappearance has become a politico-military tactic. Countries such as Iraq, Sri Lanka, and – even after the passage of nearly half a century – Vietnam are trying to address a huge and painful legacy of missing persons from past conflicts, said the ICMP Director-General Kathryne Bomberger in her comment on the occasion of International Day of the Disappeared.
