Bishop Joseph calls for international investigation into Mannar mass grave

The Bishop of Mannar has called for an international investigation into the mass grave unearthed in Mannar, reported BBC Tamil.

Dismissing any inquiry by the Sri Lankan government, Bishop Rayappu Joseph, said that other graves had been unearthed across Jaffna, and he did not believe the investigations undertaken were authentic.
Last week construction workers attempting to installing a pipeline in Thirukketheeswaram, found the remains of two human skeletons. Further excavation revealed four human skulls earlier this week.
