Authorities have announced the recovery of 12 unidentified bodies from mass graves in the city of Tarhuna, some 90 km south of the capital Tripoli.

Abdul-Aziz Jafri, spokesman of the General Authority for Research and Identification of Missing Persons, that the bodies were recovered from five newly discovered mass graves in the city.

A total of 86 bodies have been recovered in Tarhuna since the beginning of a search in June, while Tripoli has seen the recovery of 28 bodies so far, said Jafri.
