A grave holding more than 30 bodies apparently from Saddam Hussein's regime was found in the Shiite holy city of Karbala, police said.
An Iraqi made the grisly discovery on Saturday when he uncovered bones and old clothes while he was digging a foundation for a house he was building. He informed the police, who found more than 30 bodies of men and women believed to have been killed in 1991 when Saddam's forces brutally crushed a Shiite uprising that followed the Gulf War.
The grave was found in Karbala, 80 kilometers (50 miles) south of Baghdad.
