Iraqi forensic teams have begun to excavate 12 suspected mass grave sites in the city of Tikrit, days after Islamic State (IS) militants were driven out after a month-long siege.
The graves are thought to contain the bodies of up to 1,700 Iraqi Shia soldiers who were massacred last June, as IS extended its territory across northern Iraq. (BBC)
