A tip-off from a former secret police officer have led residents in the rebel-held town of Derna in eastern Libya to unravel secrets that were hidden by Muammar Gaddafi's regime for decades.

A mass grave has been discovered in the area, and forensic doctors have found pieces of bone and clothing.
 
They fear that as many as seven people were buried there.
