Mannar mass grave excavation reveals another skeleton

Excavations at the site of the Mannar mass grave revealed another skeleton today, reported the Uthayan.

The latest discovery brings the total number of human remains found at the site in Thirukketheeswaram to 44.

The mass grave was unearthed when construction workers found two human skeletons on December 20th when digging in Thirukketheeswaram.

The following week, a further four skulls were unearthed, with more over subsequent weeks (see also here, here, here and here).

Last week the Bishop of Mannar, who has called for an international investigation into the mass grave due to the lack of credibility associated with any internal process, said that the holes in many of the skulls were believed to be from gunshot wounds.
