A mass grave being excavated in a north Iraqi village has yielded evidence that Iraqi forces executed women and children under Saddam Hussein.
US-led investigators have located nine trenches in Hatra containing hundreds of bodies believed to be Kurds killed during the repression of the 1980s.
The body of one woman was found still clutching a baby. The infant had been shot in the back of the head and the woman in the face.
Of course, things could be going faster:
Mr Kehoe said that work to uncover graves around Iraq, where about 300,000 people are thought to have been killed during Saddam Hussein's regime, was slow as experienced European investigators were not taking part.
The Europeans, he said, were staying away as the evidence might be used eventually to put Saddam Hussein to death.
And that would be a tragedy. Wouldn't it?
1And before you name off other places where similar things are going on and ask, "Why not them?" let me make it clear that I'm for invading those places too. Unfortunately, we don't have the resources to fix it all at once. Common sense says we should hit those nations that are the largest threat to us first.
