Libya mass graves reveal 25 more bodies

Another 25 unidentified bodies have been found in mass graves in the Libyan town of Tarhuna, Libyan authorities say, following years of brutal militia rule.

The farming town was controlled for years by the Kaniyat militia, run by six brothers who imposed their dominance by slaughtering opponents and their entire families.

Around 200 bodies have been found so far, according to the department which uncovered the remains, which said another “five graves were discovered” containing another 25 corpses.

The latest grim findings come after another 10 bodies were uncovered on October 4.
