TRIPOLI - A military unit allied to Libya's new rulers said on Wednesday it had discovered a mass grave in Tripoli containing the bodies of more than 200 people who died in the chaos surrounding the rebel assault that ousted Muammar Gaddafi.

Naji al-Issawi, a commander in a unit of Tripoli's military council, showed reporters two corpses exhumed from a cemetery which he said contained between 200 and 300 corpses.

Issawi said officials planned to dig up more of the site in the Gargarish district and start identifying the remains.
