U.N.: 68 bodies found in Ivory Coast soccer field
Question of the Day
DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — The United Nations human rights chief in Ivory Coast said on Monday that U.N. investigators have determined at least 68 bodies were in a mass grave recently discovered on a soccer field in the country’s commercial capital, Abidjan.
Guillaume Ngefa, the deputy director of the human rights division of the U.N. mission, said the victims likely were killed by pro-Laurent Gbagbo militias on April 12, the day after the strongman was arrested.
Mr. Ngefa said investigators visited the site Friday and photographed the 10 burial mounds in the mass grave. They interviewed witnesses who described the killings and family members who identified the dead inside the graves.
Mr. Ngefa said by telephone from Abidjan that the largest grave is believed to hold 31 bodies. Another has at least 21.
