A "WE are one" football tournament will be held in Keighley as part of events commemorating the worst atrocity in Europe since the Second World War.

The tournament, which will bring together young people with the aim of tackling hatred and intolerance, will be at University Academy Keighley next Friday (July 13) from 5.30pm until 9.30pm.

More than 300 young people are set to take part to honour those killed in the massacre at Srebrenica, in Bosnia, which happened 23 years ago.

At least 8,000 Bosnian Muslims, mostly men and boys, were murdered by Serb forces during the closing stages of the Bosnian Civil War in 1995.

This year’s theme for the commemoration is called Acts of Courage. It will pay tribute to the ordinary Bosnians who took great risks to protect others during the conflict.

Srebrenica Memorial Week runs from Sunday July 8 to Sunday July 15.

A special commemoration event, arranged by Bradford Council’s Diversity and Cohesion Service, takes place on Monday July 9 from 12.30pm in the Banqueting Suite of Bradford City Hall.

Dignitaries due to attend include Riad Terzic, a Bosnian survivor, The Lord Mayor of Bradford and Keighley Central Councillor Zafar Ali, Keighley West Councillor Adrian Farley and other civic, faith and community representatives.
