Forensic experts have exhumed the remains of dozens of German soldiers buried during World War II in Montenegro's capital, officials said Monday The remains were discovered at a construction site a few kilometers (miles) outside Podgorica's downtown, German and Montenegrin forensic experts said. "So far we have found 90 out of 476 German soldiers' remains believed buried in this area during the Nazi occupation," chief German expert Johann Tieber told The Associated Press.
