Spokesman for the Mine Action Unit of Sirte Protection Force, Salem al-Amil said that lack of capabilities had prevented their team from retrieving the rest of the bodies from the mass grave discovered west of Sirte about a week ago.

In a press statement, al-Amil explained that the Red Crescent and Red Cross promised to provide them with the necessary needs to continue their task.

He added that they have managed to recover around eighty bodies, noting that the number is expected to exceed a 100.
