Somaliland Mass Graves Excavated: *Read/Watch

1) - After two weeks of continuous hard work we finally finished with mass grave 1. We recovered a total of 12 bodies, and now we are working in the lab. We want to try to establish not only the most probable cause of death, but also try to identify someone. This would contribute to the right to know of their relatives and so close their cycle of mourning after more than 20 years. *P.S. We are still working to recover more bodies from the mass grave 2--By Franco Mora (Forensic Archaeologist of Peruvian Forensic Anthropology Team)

Muted Voices:
Over the past week the team has worked to wrap up the first mass grave identification. As we began to exhume the remains of the last individual of the grave, I began to prepare the remains for photography. However, during the next trowel of sand I struck a set of Carpal bones which exposed the hand of a yet unseen victim - number 11 for this grave at that point. These victims were silenced in a brutal manner and their voices muted. However, through these ongoing efforts we aspire to give them a voice, dignity, and closure.  By Derek O'Neill
