Residents in rebel-held Derna say they have found evidence of atrocities committed by Gaddafi's regime.



    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.
