Benghazi, 25 June 2015:
Graves, thought to be of terrorists killed in fighting, have been discovered by the army in . . .[restrict]the Boatni district of Benghazi.
A video shows troops from Saiqa walking over open ground near the Airport Road and pointing out the graves, most of which are marked with small banks of stones.
Fadel Hassi of the Saiqa investigation department said it was not yet clear how many people had been buried at the site and in the surrounding farmland. It is presumed that they died in heavy fighting earlier in the year. Ansar Al-Sharia generally seek to remove their fallen from the battlefield to give them a correct burial. It is unclear why the graves have only been discovered now.
The Libyan Red Crescent has been given the unpleasant task of exhuming the corpses and transporting them to the coroner where DNA samples will be taken. Hassi said that it was expected that some of dead will prove not to be Libyan. [/restrict]
