A mass grave with up to 15 bodies has been discovered outside Ajdabiya. The find, 18 kilometres to the south of the town, contained at least one corpse wearing a uniform.

The exhumation was begun by members of the Red Crescent and soldiers from the 152 Infantry Battalion, who had told by people in the town of a mass-burial. It is unclear when the bodies were buried nor how they died.
