Scores of bodies exhumed in US campus

Deaths probed after discovery in Florida graveyard in school, where staff allegedly abused students decades ago.

    More than 50 bodies have been found in a graveyard on a school campus in the US State of Florida.

    Forensic Experts have been given permission to exhume the graves - and determine how they died.

    Those who attended Dozier Reform School in the 1950s and 60s say they were subject to horrific beatings by staff.

    The school was segregated by race - and the site is next to the black part of campus.
