    The government will handover Wednesday the remains of a group of soldiers killed following a failed coup attempt in December 30, 2014 to their families.

    It followed autopsies on the bodies which were exhumed from mass graves several months ago.

    The submission of the remains to the victim’s families comes two days after the Gambia commenced public hearings to look into human rights violations during the 22-year rule of Yahya Jammeh.
