  1. Iraqi Soldiers’ Mass Grave Exhumed

    ISIS reportedly massacred some 1,700 air force cadets last year, and now, just days after Iraqi forces retook the city of Tikrit from the militants, forensics experts have begun excavating suspected mass graves. Work progresses slowly, as DNA samples from the recovery are sent to Baghdad for testing so bodies can be identified. Confessions from captured fighters led authorities to the site, but officials still aren’t sure if they will find all of the remains.
