900 bodies found in mass grave

07/07/2011 09:49

Erbil, July 7 (AKnews) – 900 corpses were recovered from a mass grave near Diwaniyah yesterday. They are believe to be Kurds killed during Saddam Hussein’s Anfal genocide campaign.

The remains have been transferred to forensic laboratories in Najaf city to attempt to identify the dead. The remains are believed to date from the 1980s.

Another grave, with 800 bodies, was found in Anbar province in April.

There are still hundreds of thousands of people missing as a result of Saddam Hussein’s violent repression of anyone who opposed his rule, many of them Kurds. Hundreds of mass graves have already been uncovered, but many more are yet to be found.
