Libyan official: Nine new bodies found in mass grave in Tarhuna

The finding of bodies in mass graves has continued in Libya and adding to the latest list of the recovered bodies, nine additional unidentified bodies were found inside mass graves, in the city of Tarhuna, some 90 km south of Tripoli.

The new recovery has been confirmed by the local officials engaged in the process.

Kamal Al-Siwi, Chairman of the Libyan General Authority for Research and Identification of Missing Persons, said that the new finding brought the total number of recovered bodies to 19 since the authority began work in Tarhuna.

Tarhuna was the main military operation centre for the rival East-based Army commanded by General Khalifa Haftar, before the UN-backed government took control of it.

Libya has been suffering from escalating violence and political division ever since the fall of the late leader Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in 2011.
