According to The Washington Post, International Criminal Court (ICC) investigators might have found a mass grave in the west Ivory Coast town of Duekoue, where it is alleged that fighters loyal to the president killed hundreds of people during the post election violence last year.
Last year, forces loyal to the newly elected President Alassane Ouattara committed this massacre, according to Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International.
Violence arose after Laurent Gbagbo would not cede power to Ouattara, who won the 2010 election.
Gbagbo was sent to the ICC and is currently facing charges of murder, rape and other crimes allegedly committed by his supporters during the months-long post election violence. The U.N. says at least 3,000 people were killed during this time and that atrocities were committed on both sides.
