Stripped in front of crowd-executed- Yugoslavia

At about 4:30 p.m., six masked soldiers searching houses nearby found 45 people hiding in basements. They forced them into the street, took their money and jewelry and shot dead 27-year-old Bashkim Lokaj, according to Rexhep Meha, who later saw the body inside a burning house.
Meha said the rest of the group was marched into a field. After taking more money, the gunmen called out the name of Besnik Lokaj, who told them, "I have no money, and you killed my brother."
Paramilitary troops stripped him naked in front of the crowd, led him off to the side and executed him, according to Meha, who saw his body moments later.
