Malaysian police exhume bodies from mass grave

Exhumation of remains of dozens of suspected victims of migrant trafficking continues in a jungle in Perlis state.

    In a shallow, unmarked grave in Malaysia's Perlis state, a forensics team is carefully trying to unearth the remains of reported trafficking victims.

    The police do not yet know the identity of the victims nor the cause of death of the bodies found in the mass grave. But they are likely to be migrants who were being trafficked into Malaysia.
