Six bodies from a mass grave in the city of Tarhuna, south of the capital Tripoli, were exhumed by Libyan authorities on Wednesday.
The corpses were found in a landfill site in the city, the General Authority for Research and Identification of Missing Persons said in a statement.
Forensic teams are examining the bodies to determine their identity, according to the statement.
In war-torn Libya, discoveries of mass graves are common, especially in Tarhuna city, a former stronghold for warlord Khalifa Haftar.
Haftar’s forces and affiliated militias committed war crimes and acts of genocide in the period between April 2019 and June 2020, according to Libyan official sources.
