ISIS buried thousands in 72 mass graves
Photographs, some hard to look at, show human remains found in multiple grave sites; thousands of people have been buried at these sites, believed to be the victims of ISIS.

Approximately 72 of the mass graves that ISIS extremists left behind have been uncovered. Many more mass graves will likely be found as ISIS retreats.

 

 

In Syria, AP obtained 17 mass grave locations, including one with hundreds of bodies from a single tribe. In total, the number of the dead ranges from 5,200 to well over 15,000.

The graves were discovered in Iraq and Syria, and many more are expected to be found as the extremist group loses territory.
