The International Committee of the Red Cross said earlier this week that at least 13 mass graves have been found in Libya over the past three weeks.

"Today a mass grave was discovered for the revolutionaries that were killed by the Gaddafi brigades. We uncovered 25 corpses that were buried in a mass grave," a Libyan fighter said.
