Three men set up a fence and a ribbon of yellow and black crime scene tape around a site south of Iraq's Mosul, marking a mass grave.The organization, which is under the authority of the Iraqi premier's office, has been working for over a month to trace how the killings unfolded, and has already collected many accounts from local residents.Fuad can imagine what happened and now wants only one thing: to see the body of his brother, to know for sure.More bodies would add to hundreds already discovered in other mass graves left by Daesh militants, who overran swaths of territory north and west of Baghdad in 2014 but have since been pushed back by Iraqi forces.Twenty-nine mass graves containing at least 1,600 bodies have been found in Sinjar, west of Mosul, since Iraqi Kurdish forces recaptured it last year, according to Mahma Khalil, the local official responsible for the area.
