Bodies Of 26 Female Teenage Migrants Found In The Mediterranean

The latest search and rescue operation in the stretch of sea separating Libya and Italy highlights some of the brutal treatment that female refugees and migrants are subjected to.

More than 2,560 people were rescued in the Mediterranean Sea over the weekend in one of the roughest missions so far this year, the International Organization for Migration said Tuesday. Thirty-four bodies were recovered from the water, 26 of them suspected to be teenagers from Nigeria. Most died while making the crossing toward Italy in rubber dinghies.

IOM believes the girls may have been “murdered by traffickers in league with European sex merchants.”

Salvatore Malfi, the prefect of the Italian port city of Salerno, was skeptical of this theory but said it’s too early to come to any conclusion about whether the girls were headed for prostitution. The girls traveled with other men in the dinghy, he said, which makes the theory less likely.

“The sex trafficking routes are different,” he said. “Loading women onto a boat is too risky, the traffickers would not do it as they could lose all their ‘goods’ ― as they describe them ― in one fell swoop.”

Italian authorities told CNN that they launched an investigation into the girls’ deaths Tuesday, carrying out autopsies to determine whether they had been victims of sexual abuse or torture. They were all between 14 and 18 years old, said Salerno police chief Lorena Ciccotti.

More than 80 percent of Nigerian women who arrived in Italy by sea during the first six months of 2016 may have later become trafficking victims, a 2016 IOM report found.

About 1,500 Nigerian women and girls made it to Italy in 2014, said Federico Soda, director of IOM’s Coordination Office for the Mediterranean. That number exploded in 2016 to 11,000. 

The route used by these women has become a death trap for people escaping their home countries, due to the torture they experience before reaching the water and the high fatality rate once en route to Italy.

Smugglers operate vast networks across the Middle East and Africa, exploiting vulnerable people who pay to escape. Abuse, violence and detention are commonplace.

Three-quarters of the migrant children interviewed in a February UNICEF report said they had experienced violence, harassment or aggression at the hands of adults. Almost half the women interviewed said they’d experienced sexual violence or abuse during their journey.

A total of 154,609 migrants and refugees have entered Europe by sea this year, about 75 percent of whom used the Libya-Italy route, IOM said. The rest arrived via Greece, Spain or Cyprus. Almost 3,000 have died.

Re: Israel refuses to release bodies of Palestinians killed in Gaza tunnel blast

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday refused to return the bodies of the five Palestinians who were found by the Israeli army after the Gaza-border tunnel attack last week.

“The government has two major goals. The first is to protect the country, and the second is to build up the country.” Netanyahu said, as quoted by Israel’s Arutz Sheva

“We’re working on both simultaneously. We’re defending our country with a simple rule – we attack whoever attacks us and the second [rule] is that we’re not going to give something for nothing,” he added.

Referring to the two slain soldiers held by Hamas in the Gaza Strip, Netanyahu stressed that Israel will return its held civilians to their families. “We will bring our boys home, but I repeat: there are no free gifts,” he reiterated.

On Monday, Gaza health ministry announced the killing of seven Palestinians and the injury of 12 others in a tunnel explosion that was carried out by the Israeli forces in Gaza’s southern area of Khan Yunis.

Israel claims that Hamas has been withholding the bodies of two Israeli soldiers, Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul, who were killed in the last Israeli military offensive on the Gaza Strip in the summer of 2014.

Hamas refuses to disclose any information about the held bodies until Israel releases the Palestinians who were arrested in 2014 after they were released in a prisoner exchange deal in 2011. “We will not provide any information in exchange for locating those missing,” Hamas official, Mahmoud Al-Zahar, recently said.

Alzheimer’s treatment should target our bodies, not brains – study

The brain is an extraordinarily complex organ on which to operate for surgeons. However, the international team of researchers from the University of British Columbia in Canada, along with colleagues in China’s Third Military Medical University in Chongqing, believes that future therapies for Alzheimer’s, a major precursor to dementia, may instead target other organs such as the liver or kidneys to provide a more effective treatment.

“Alzheimer’s disease is clearly a disease of the brain, but our research shows that we need to pay attention to the whole body to understand where it comes from, and how to stop it,” said Weihong Song, a psychiatry professor at the University of British Columbia as cited in a press release.

The team used a technique known as parabiosis, which involves surgically attaching two specimens, mice in this case, who then share the same blood supply for several months.

Mice do not naturally develop Alzheimer’s disease, but the researchers attached a normal mouse to a genetically modified one with mutated genes that produced high levels of a protein called amyloid-beta, prevalent in people with Alzheimer’s.

Over a period of 12 months, the ‘normal’ mice contracted the simulated Alzheimer’s through the shared circulatory system and bore symptoms such as twisted strands of protein that kill brain cells from the inside-out. In just four months, the normal mice showed impaired learning and memory faculties.

“The blood-brain barrier weakens as we age. That might allow more amyloid beta to infiltrate the brain, supplementing what is produced by the brain itself and accelerating the deterioration,” Song added. The protein amyloid-beta is produced in multiple regions throughout the body, including blood platelets and vessels, our muscles and several other organs.

This research may lead to dramatic changes and improvements in how we treat Alzheimer’s in the future. Song suggests a drug that would biochemically ‘tag’ amyloid-beta throughout our bodies so our liver or kidneys could more effectively target and neutralize it.

California passes legislation allowing the liquification of human bodies

CSS-Offical-New-Logo2

Death-Dead-Morgue-Toe-Tag-Feet

 

(Natural News) Last Oct. 15, 2017, California Governor Jerry Brown signed the controversial Assembly Bill 967, or the bill that makes it legal to dispose of human remains through water cremation. Also known as alkaline hydrolysis, Californians will be able to choose this cremation method for their loved ones as early as 2020.

Despite its name, water cremation doesn’t actually make use of water. The process entails placing a body into a steel vat containing an alkaline solution composed of 95 percent water and five percent potassium hydroxide or lye. The combination of chemicals, pressure, and heat that reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit (or 177 degrees Celsius) quicken the rate of decomposition until all that are left behind are bones, sterile water, and any medical implants. The remaining bones are then crushed into ash and returned to the family.

Matter Baskerville, an Illinois-based funeral director whose funeral home utilizes water cremation, has stated that the process leaves behind a finer, softer ash than what is normally produced by flame-based cremation.

According to DailyMail.co.uk, water cremation was first developed as a way to get rid of animal carcasses by processing them into plant food. It remained this way until the 1990s when two researchers at Albany Medical College in New York began disposing of lab animals through alkaline hydrolysis. These researchers then became involved with a company called WR2 that constructed the first water cremation machine that could handle a human body. The first known use of the machine was in 2006 in the Mayo Clinic’s anatomical bequest program in Rochester, Minnesota.

Proponents of water cremation have touted it as a green alternative to standard cremations and burials amid growing concerns over the carbon footprints of these methods. For one, the use of energy to heat and cool the lye is said to emit 80 percent less carbon dioxide than flame cremations that burn natural gas. Water cremation also leaves behind inorganic materials like tooth fillings and pacemakers, which could ease the fears of toxic chemicals polluting the environment. (Related: California may legalize “liquid cremation” in bizarre attempt to fight global warming.)

Moreover, the roiling lye has been said to sterilize organic materials, break down toxic chemicals, and reduce the risk of disease spreading. Joe Wilson, CEO of alkaline hydrolysis systems manufacturer Bio-Response Solutions, told ScientificAmerican.com: “It’s hot as hell in there, and alkali is a powerful sterilant at temperature. Even the hardiest pathogen, an anthrax spore, is easily killed.”

The new law will require funeral homes to apply for permits from their local water authorities before they can offer water cremation as an option. These permits will allow the funeral homes to send the remains into the sewage system on-site. Alternatively, the funerals homes could partner up with companies experienced in handling and disposing biological waste. These came as responses to concerns over the high pH levels involved in water cremation, as the pH of the discharged wastes goes above 11.

While some people have approached the idea of water cremation with trepidation, others have embraced it as a huge and positive change in cremation. Todd Gloria, the California assemblyman who wrote the bill, is one of them. Gloria has stated that he hopes water cremation will become the new norm, and is taking the necessary steps to do so. “I plan to be cremated. It would be poetic if I could take advantage of my own bill,” said Gloria.

Fast facts about cremation

  • In 2012, Nevada had the highest cremation rate at 74.2 percent. In contrast, Mississippi’s cremation rate was at 16.9 percent.
  • The act of scattering ashes in different locations at different times is known as “wildcat scattering”, a practice that is prohibited but popular in Central Park and Disneyland.
  • Ashes can be scattered at national parks, at sea, and by air. However, there are strict regulations for each one. For example, national parks require permits for scattering remains. Scattering remains by ship or by plane over sea, meanwhile, needs to be reported to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) within 30 days.

Vegas Bombshell: Video Shows 17 Ambulances Pulling Bodies Out of HOOTERS

On the night of October 1, Youtuber Benjamin Franks and his friend had just grabbed some tacos and were heading back to their hotel room at the MGM when they noticed a separate disturbance at the corner of Las Vegas Blvd and Tropicana Ave.

Fifteen-minutes later, from the leisure of his hotel room, Franks managed to capture bombshell video footage which shows a total of 17 ambulances removing human bodies from Hooters, contradicting the official story told by Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo.

“They are just pulling so many bodies out of that Hooters,” a man’s voice can be heard saying at the 24-second mark. “I don’t know if people are dead — I don’t know if people are just injured — they just keep pullin’ them out though […] something definitely happened at Hooters though.”

“It must have happened at Hooters dude because they are all showing up there,” he said. “It looks like most of them are at Hooters.”

Hooters Casino and Hotel is located at 115 E. Tropicana Ave. which is just northeast of the venue where the Route 91 Music Festival was being hosted.

The police and FBI are lyingFranks’s footage is absolute proof that the Los Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the FBI are lying to the general public and have not been forthcoming about all of the events that occurred that night.

The Youtuber wrote in his Oct. 21 post (Paragrah contains grammer issues): “Me and my buddy went to vegas for two days. This was our first day there and had been out on the strip earlier but drove to circus circus later on. We had just gotten tacos when we finally reached tropicana and las vegas blvd is when we saw everyone running and all the police. We were lucky to get to the mgm parking garage and into our room about 15 minutes later and thats when this video starts. WE HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS GOING ON.”

“Bodies just everywhere”

The following video was captured inside Hooters after the shooting and shows what appears to be human bodies covered with towels and sheets. The man filming can be heard saying that Hooters is “locked-down” and that there are “bodies just everywhere.”

In the video, it even looks as if blood can be seen on at least one. However, the status of the people is unknown.

The lone ranger

An Oct. 14 Intellihub report documents how an eyewitness named Rick explained on a podcast that one of his girlfriend’s friends (who was in his group of five that night) had witnessed a ‘solo SWAT guy’ enter the back door of Hooters, the same building that Rick said he witnessed people fleeing from!

A few moments later (after the gunfire in the venue subsided), Rick met back up with all five members of his group near a sign that they used for a landmark which was located between Hooters and Motel 6 and that’s when Rick said that he saw a “frantic stampede” of people fleeing Hooters.

“[…] there was a bunch of people trying to get the hell away from Hooters so we did too,” he explained. “So we started running again.”

Rick also pointed out that at one point one of his group members had witnessed “SWAT” guy enter Hooters through the back which he thought was suspicious. The scene was fluid and rapidly changing. Nobody could be trusted.

At one point, the group was told that a shooter had stolen a police car which elevated concern.

Chaos outside Hooters captured on video

A video posted to the “Ronson ¡n s¡n California” YouTube channel shows the moment people fled from Hooters in a panic (this is not a fantasy, it’s real folks).

The publisher explains in the video’s description box that “the place [Route 91] was like a war zone” and mentions that he went back to Hooter’s after running around for “30-minutes” from “gunmen.”

“So we ran back to hooters,” the description explains. ‘Right when we got in the lobby someone yelled run! Everybody ran, hid, barricaded, and dived over bars.’

The blackjack dealer

This matches up with what Hooters Hotel and Casino blackjack dealer Schanda Bennett told NPR the day after the shooting. Bennett said she heard shots “outside” of Hooters and confirmed dead bodies were, in fact, laying on the ground in front of Hooters. However, Bennett theorizes that the people who dropped dead in front of Hooters did so after running from the venue even though eyewitness reports suggest gunfire came from within the proximity of Hooters, possibly out front. After all, why were people fleeing Hooters?

“There were people – there were bodies in the front of the casino that was just laying there.,” she said. “People that ran from the venue – they just died right there.”

Blood stains on the carpet

The next video shows blood stains on the carpet in Hooters lobby, just outside of the elevator shaft as people panic (a lot of blood at 0:23 seconds).

“I know I’m all fun and games but this shit ain’t fuckin’ games,” the man filming explained while he briskly searched for an emergency exit to evacuate Hooters. “When you hear fuckin’ shots from a high-output riffle coming from out of nowhere in the middle of a concert and people are taking cover […]”

The man was walking through Hooters after he had left the venue where he heard gunfire and ‘saw people go down.’

‘Shots were coming from Hooters, MGM area’

Another Intellihub report which I authored Oct. 16 explains how an eyewitness named Geo Rios said that he heard shots coming from Hooters just after he and his girlfriend had jumped the north fence at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival. This confirms without a shadow of a doubt that shots were, in fact, fired at Hooters.

“We ran straight to the back of the venue and there was like a ten-foot fence,” Rios explained.

That’s when Rios and his girlfriend climbed up and over the fence using a piece of an “orange gate” as a makeshift ladder. Rios said that they couldn’t climb the fence without the makeshift ladder because the fence was covered with a “green material” that wouldn’t allow you to grab it.

‘There were two guys that were standing on the other side of the fence that were catching everybody,’ he said. “One of them caught my girlfriend.”

“Everyone who lived is a hero, from that event, and I want to make that clear. […] There was a lot of beautiful things going on. A lot of people taking care of each other,” he explained.

Once the couple was over the fence Rios said that he could hear ‘shots coming from Hooters, the MGM area’ in addition to the shots coming from Mandalay Bay. This is the very same area other eyewitnesses also heard shots being fired!

Duck and run

Additionally, another man was hiding under his car in the Hooters parking lot when the chaos erupted.

It’s funny how some statements made by people with a ‘good reputation’ are often perceived as ‘credible’ right away, but when these statements are on a controversial subject, like UFOs, they are still greeted with harsh skepticism. It seems that something has to be presented in the mainstream before it’s considered credible, like this picture of Hillary Clinton and Laurence Rockefeller talking about the implications of contact with intelligent extraterrestrials. A small group of people and the corporations they run control virtually all of our media. Therefore, you don’t know about what is not presented, and what is presented is often skewed, misleading, and not true. But this isn’t the case every single time.

What makes something ‘credible?’ It depends on a lot of factors. When it comes to the topic of UFOs, what we have are hundreds, if not thousands of people with distinct backgrounds, ranging from employment within defence and space agencies, military personnel of all ranks, to politicians and more who have all ‘testified’ to the existence of UFOs or intelligent extraterrestrials via experience in their given fields.

On top of that, we also have official documentation that’s been released around the world by several governments and defence intelligence agencies outlining the existence of UFOs that perform maneuvers no known air craft can.

You can find some of these statements and documents as referenced in the articles below. UFOs aren’t really a fringe topic anymore, people just want to know the truth.

This field is now littered with information that can no longer be ignored. Perhaps that’s why it’s one of the most searched topics on the internet today.

It’s important to keep in mind why it’s ok to question government intentions when in comes to ‘UFO disclosure.’ The truth, despite the fact that it is out there somewhere, will most likely, as usual, not come from them. That topic is elaborated on in this previously published article.

Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered…We are not alone in the universe, they have been coming here for a long time…I happen to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet, and the UFO phenomenon is real. —  Doctor Edgar Mitchell, 6th man to walk on the moon(source) (source)(source)

It’s a topic that, when properly understood, will leave no aspect of humanity untouched. It branches into so many different areas, and there are a lot of questions to be asked.

All of the evidence that’s been made public today makes it ‘acceptable’ for these people to continue speaking out and spreading more information, because there is no longer a fear of ridicule.

German WWI U-boat found in Belgium waters with 23 bodies inside

    

An intact German World War I submarine containing the bodies of 23 people has been found off the coast of Belgium, authorities said Tuesday.

Western Flanders Governor Carl Decaluwe told The Associated Press that the find on the floor of the North Sea “is very unique.”

“It’s quite amazing that we found something like this,” Decaluwe said. “The impact damage was at the front, but the submarine remains closed and there are 23 people still onboard.”

The UB II-type dive boat that was found is 27 meters (88 feet) long and 6 meters (almost 20 feet) wide, and is lying at about a 45 degree angle, between 25-30 meters (82-98 feet) below the surface.

From the damage to the front of the vessel, it appears that the sub may have struck a mine with its upper deck. Two torpedo tubes have been destroyed but the lower tube is intact and closed.

Video images show the submarine encrusted with barnacles and seaweed. It is also adorned with fishing gear, including nets.

Decaluwe said the U-boat was found by researchers. He declined to provide details about its location until the site has been protected. He has contacted the German ambassador because “we need to see what can do” with the remains.

Around 18 U-boats were stationed with the Flanders Flotilla in Bruges between 1915 and 1918. Thirteen of them were destroyed.

It’s the 11th such wreck to be found in Belgian waters.

Allied warships and cargo ships were easy pickings for the German subs that were launched from Bruges, just across the English Channel.

Bodies of 400 Children Discovered in Hidden Mass Grave at Catholic Orphanage

orphanageorphanage

The results of a horrifying investigation into a Catholic orphanage are being released this week. The report revealed the discovery of a mass grave containing the bodies of over 400 orphans—including babies, toddlers, and children.

The investigation, conducted by the Sunday Post and the BBC, looked into the dark secret of the Catholic run Smyllum Park orphanage. While the orphanage—which operated for a century and a half—put headstones on the graves of nuns and staff members, no stone or memorial has ever recorded the deaths of these 402 orphans found buried in a single mass grave.

According to the Sunday Post, the revelation that up to 400 youngsters – and some adults – are buried there today provoked calls for Scotland’s ongoing Child Abuse Inquiry to investigate.

As the BBC reports, the Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul, which ran the home, refused to comment on the findings.

Former First Minister, Jack McConnell, who, on behalf of the Scottish Government, apologized to victims of care home abuse in 2004, said it was shameful they were still waiting for truth and justice, reports the Post. He said, “It is heartbreaking to discover so many children may have been buried in these unmarked graves. After so many years of silence, we must now know the truth of what happened here.”

According to the BBC, “Analysis of the records show that a third of those who died were aged 5 or younger. Twenty-four of those who died were older than 15, and most of the deaths occurred between 1870 and 1930.”

The Post noted that what this means is that “the death rate among 1- to 14-year-olds was at least 30 deaths per 1,000.”

“Analysis of figures from the National Records of Scotland, reveal the highest mortality rate among children aged between 1 and 14 was in 1901 when 10.4 deaths per 1,000 were recorded,” it added.

This means the mortality rate for children in the Catholic run orphanage was 300 percent higher than the highest mortality rate of Scottish children ever recorded.

“Some children were sent to the home from other places across central Scotland, so spot checks were also made with a number of other areas. Burial records were discovered in Glasgow for two of the dead. No other area we approached could find any burial record for the names we asked them to check,” according to the BBC.

“As the Daughters of Charity have previously indicated that children were buried in an unmarked plot at the cemetery, and that their records are incomplete, all the bodies are believed to be buried in the graveyard.”

The inquiry into the mass grave began in 2003 when two former residents of the orphanage Frank Docherty and Jim Kane set out in their efforts to expose the rampant physical abuse which they claimed happened regularly to many of the children.

Docherty and Kane were told by Daughter of Charity of St Vincent de Paul that their records suggested that only 158 children had been buried on the property. However, Docherty and Kane, who both died earlier this year, suspected those numbers to be much higher. The BBC/Post investigation proves they were right.

“Oh my God, I’ve got goose pimples. It’s shocking,” said Frank Docherty’s widow, Janet, when the Post told her the results of their investigation.

“He had been trying for years to find a figure and he didn’t get anywhere. That’s unbelievable.

“Frank always feared there were more kids buried there and this is proof of that,” she said. “He would have been content that it has come out now at last.”

According to the BBC’s report,

Analysis of the records show that a third of those who died were aged five or under. Very few of those who died, 24 in total, were aged over 15, and most of the deaths occurred between 1870 and 1930.

One of those believed to be buried there is Francis McColl. He died in 1961, aged 13; his death certificate indicates he died from a brain hemorrhage.

His brother Eddie spent decades wondering what had happened to Francis. At one point, he heard he’d been struck on the head by a golf club, which now chimes with the evidence of the death certificate.

However, according to the report, Eddie could find no records of where his brother was buried.

“It’s ridiculous,” he says. “I’m not happy about that. Whoever is behind this, I hope they can live with themselves.”

Many allegations of abuse at the care home were also uncovered by File on 4 and the Sunday Post, including beatings, punches, public humiliations and psychological abuse, according to the report.

The Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul have declined to speak publicly on any of these recent revelations.

However, they released a statement saying, “We are Core Participants in the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry and are co-operating fully with that inquiry.

“We remain of the view that this inquiry is the most appropriate forum for such investigations.

“Given the ongoing work of the inquiry we do not wish to provide any interviews.

“We wish to again make clear that, as Daughters of Charity, our values are totally against any form of abuse and thus, we offer our most sincere and heartfelt apology to anyone who suffered any form of abuse whilst in our care.”

Bodies Of ‘Hundreds’ Of Children Discovered In Mass Grave At Scottish Orphanage

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Something straight out of a horror movie has presented itself in real life, and many don’t know what to think about the discovery. It was recently learned that up to 400 children died at a Scottish orphanage that was run by Catholic nuns. To make matters worse, the bodies were discovered in one single, unmarked mass grave.

The Telegraph reports that the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul ran the Smyllum Park orphanage in Lanarkshire, where hundreds of homeless children were sent to live. In the past, the nuns admitted to burying 158 children at a nearby cemetery, but some have long suspected the real figure was much higher. They were right.

The investigation, which was carried out by BBC Radio 4’s File on Four program and the Sunday Post newspaper, revealed that hundreds of children had died at Smyllum — far more than the charity admitted. In total, 402 babies, toddlers and children perished at the orphanage between 1864 and 1981 (the year the establishment closed its doors). The bodies were found in an unmarked grave at St. Mary’s Cemetery.

Though there are headstones noting the location of the nuns and staff members, no memorial can be found recording the names of the deceased children. In 2004, on behalf of the British government, former First Minister Jack McConnell apologized to victims of care home abuse. He said it was “shameful” they were still waiting for the truth and justice. “It is heartbreaking to discover so many children may have been buried in these unmarked graves. After so many years of silence, we must now know the truth of what happened here,” said McConnell.

Former residents have spoken out about their time at the orphanage and have accused the nuns and staff of beating and neglecting some of the kids in their care. During the second phase of an inquiry starting in November, the care given at Smyllum will be scrutinized as a result. This newest revelation has also provoked calls to investigate how and when the children died at the orphanage.

Janet Bishop of the Association of Scottish Genealogists And Researchers in Archives led the research. For the initial investigation, Bishop and her team looked through 15,000 official records. They learned that for the most part, there are no recorded details of the children’s lives other than their dates of birth and deaths. Most of the deaths occurred between 1870 and 1930. Causes of deaths listed include accidents, diseases (such as tuberculosis, flu and scarlet fever), and even malnutrition. Between the years of 1864 and 1981, 11,601 children passed through Smyllum Park, according to evidence obtained by the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry.

The Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul refused to comment, but said in a statement: “We are Core Participants in the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry and are co-operating fully with that inquiry. We remain of the view that this inquiry is the most appropriate forum for such investigations. Given the ongoing work of the inquiry we do not wish to provide any interviews. We wish to again make clear that, as Daughters of Charity, our values are totally against any form of abuse and thus, we offer our most sincere and heartfelt apology to anyone who suffered any form of abuse whilst in our care.”

Though this recent finding is disturbing, at the very least, it is good to know details concerning this tragedy are being revealed.=

2,100 bodies of civilians discovered in aftermath of Mosul

[9/10/17/MEMO]  Since July, over 2,000 bodies have been excavated in the western part of Mosul, after the city was cleared from Daesh in June, an Iraqi official said on Friday.

Speaking to an Anadolu Agency correspondent, the civil defense official of Iraq’s Ministry of Interior, Saad Hamid, said that more than 2,100 civilian bodies were found under the ruins.

Hamid said that during their work the team faced “lack of equipment and various security problems such as Deash members firing from hide outs, bunkers, tunnels or basements”.

There are still nearly 400 to 500 bodies which need to be removed from the ruins which could take up to two months to finish the work, Hamid added.

In June, the Iraqi army retook the northern city of Mosul, regional capital of Nineveh province, from the terrorist group after a nine-month campaign.

In August, Daesh was driven from Nineveh’s Tal Afar district following a week long army operation.
