U.S. authorities believe the grave is filled with about 800 bodies of Shiites killed by Iraq’s military as they staged an uprising against Saddam following the defeat of his forces in the Gulf War, the official added.

U.S. officials have said they believe there are up to 260 mass graves in Iraq containing the remains of at least 300,000 people murdered by Saddam’s forces. They said about 40 such mass graves have been discovered.
