This revelation follows closely on the heels of the Malian armed forces gaining control of the town. The military hierarchy emphasized that this mass grave serves as a stark reminder of the atrocities perpetrated by terrorists.
Authorities said they have initiated investigations to ensure that those responsible for these heinous acts are brought to justice.
