BIN JAWWAD, Libya - Libyan government officials said Sunday that they had unearthed a mass grave with 157 bodies of rebel fighters and civilians in an eastern town that was a major battleground during the country's 2011 civil war. [...] The ministry said the mass grave was discovered in December.And it took three months to get the cover story together. In fact, to even excavate. "The excavation began Friday and finished Sunday."
The head of the new government-run missing-persons office, Omar al-Obeidi, told the Associated Press that 80 of the bodies discovered in Bin Jawwad had been identified. He said they were all from eastern Libya. The youngest was a 17-year-old male.
"This is the biggest [mass grave] so far," he said. "These are civilians who were protesting in their cities and killed by Gadhafi's men," he said, referring to armed fighters and residents of eastern cities.
Obeidi said most appeared to have died from gunshot wounds and rocket strikes starting in March. Some were executed, while others were severely disfigured from rocket attacks, he said.
Protesters killed with rocket attacks in Benghazi, taken to bin Jawad, and buried in a mass grave to hide them? Okay, that'll be it, then. This is See-Through Salem's organization, after all.
Osama Swail, a spokesman at the Ministry of Martyrs, Wounded and Missing Persons, said the bodies that were identified would be returned to the families. He said two of his brothers were among the dead.Real brothers not already buried somewhere else, not existent on paper only? How many "African mercenaries" will he be visiting the graves of now?
Something tells me the stuff from the bodies will match what the lab has on file, by the paperwork, from Mohammed al-Haitz-Gaddafi, of anytown, Libya, a great kid, was lighter-skinned when alive...
A forensic team is looking at DNA samples and photos of the remaining bodies to see if they match with DNA samples the ministry has for missing persons in Libya
