The Libyan Red Crescent announced on Saturday that 31 unidentified bodies were buried in the eastern city of Benghazi.
“In presence of local authorities, Libyan Red Crescent emergency team in Benghazi buried 31 unidentified bodies that were in the mortuary of Benghazi Hospital,” the Red Crescent said on its official Facebook account.
The Red Crescent noted that the burial was carried out after DNA samples of bodies were taken by forensic officials.
Benghazi hospital previously appealed to speed up the burial of unidentified bodies that have been in the mortuary for several months.
It is still unknown whether the bodies belong to civilians terrorists killed during the eastern-based army’s fight against terrorist groups in Benghazi over the past years.
