Mass Grave Found in Sri Lanka - 17 Jan 2014
Images of a mass grave containing more than 30 human skulls in Mannar. The discovery in northern Sri Lanka has fuelled speculation that there may be many more like it containing the remains of thousands who went missing during the island nation's nearly three-decade war.

The remains, which workers stumbled on as they dug up roadside paving for a water project, are yet to be identified. The first mass grave to be found in the former war zone, it is spread over an area measuring about 400 square feet (37 square metres) and is 5 feet (1.5 metres) deep.
