More human remains have been unearthed as excavations continued at the site of the Mannar mass grave where eleven human remains were discovered last month, reported Tamilwin.

Yesterday, the four skulls were found, whilst a further three skulls were found today.


On December 20th, construction workers found two human skeletons when digging around the Manthai area of Thirukketheeswaram. The following week, a further four skulls were unearthed.

Last month the Bishop of Mannar called for an international investigation into the mass grave, dismissing any investigations by the Sri Lankan authorities, as lacking credibility.
