Victims of repression unearthed in Iraq
More victims of Saddams evil regime coming up every day ;(


(Reuters) - Iraqis clawed or shovelled through a mass grave on Sunday to uncover the remains of dozens of people, some with blindfolds and hands tied, who appeared to have been executed in a 1991 Shi'ite Muslim uprising.

Rotting clothes held together little more than skeletons or bones. Witnesses watched them being extracted from the site, about 20 km north of Najaf, then wrapped in white sheets with their plastic-coated identity cards tied on.

By the end of the day, 47 bundles of remains had been reburied in unmarked graves.

Jawbones, thigh or arm bones and skulls with patches of hair jutted from the soil. They wore civilian clothes and shoes.
