A bomb-rigged mass grave believed to hold the remains of more than 120 people killed by ISIS has been found in north Iraq, an official said Saturday.The grave, located some 10 kilometers (six miles) west of Sinjar, has not yet been excavated, but the victims were not buried deeply, and some of their remains have been exposed by rainwater, Khalil said.Another mass grave found in the area was believed to hold the bodies of some 80 women aged from 40 to around 80 who one official said may have been executed because they were deemed too old to enslave and rape.
