Hundreds of bodies exhumed from mass grave in Raqqa
More than 500 bodies have so far been exhumed from one of the largest mass graves discovered near the Syrian city of Raqqa, once the capital of the ISIS, according to Associated Press report.

More than a month after digging began in the Panorama mass grave, forensic teams continue to lift bodies believed to have been buried there during the four-month campaign to liberate Raqqa.
According to the report, the estimates put the number of bodies buried there at around 1,500. Hammoud al-Shawakh, a local official involved in the work, said Tuesday that 516 bodies have been exhumed.

Raqqa was liberated in a US-backed campaign that ended more than a year ago, but rescuers and recovery teams continue to locate mass graves around the northern city.
