Suspected mass grave found in southeast Turkey

Turkish prosecutors have found alleged mass graves that contain the bones of eight people in a search for missing Kurds in southeast Turkey, according to Turkish reports.

DNA tests would determine whether the remains belong to Kurds who went missing in the 1990s.

State prosecutors are investigating claims that a number of Kurds who disappeared during the height of a conflict between PKK and Turkish security forces in the early 1990s were killed and dumped in mass graves.
