Bodies of Kurds killed in Saddam era returned

Remains of hundreds killed more than 20 years ago have been returned to their land and properly buried.

    The bodies of hundreds of Iraqi Kurds, found in a mass grave last year, have been returned to their land and properly buried.

    They were killed more than 20 years ago, during Saddam Hussein’s, the former president, campaign against Iraqi Kurds.

    The discovery of the bodies has highlighted ethnic tensions in post-war Iraq.
