Families of the victims gather every year on July 11 in Srebrenica and bury bodies that were found in the mass graves during the previous year.
Pakistan's PM Imran Khan has said burials of the victims should not be linked to his visit, adding that is tantamount to blackmail, as protests alongside coffins of the slain ethnic minority Hazara miners enter sixth day.
Social distancing imposed by most countries means burials are only attended by one or two family members. As patients with Covid-19 are treated in total isolation at hospitals, many of them die without a chance to say goodbye to family and friends.
Israel has been holding the bodies of more than 250 Palestinians, some of them for more than a decade.
Nearly 6,000 Syrian refugees die in Lebanon each year, but increasing restrictions on burials are forcing many to resort to disturbing means to bury their loved ones.
