TRIPOLI, Jan. 2 (Xinhua) -- The Libyan authorities said on Monday that 8 unidentified bodies were discovered in the city of Tarhuna, some 90 km south of the capital Tripoli.

"The field teams from the Excavation Department recovered 8 unidentified bodies from a dump site in Tarhuna," said the General Authority for Research and Identification in a statement.

The recovered bodies will be transferred to the forensic laboratory for identification and determination of the cause of death, the statement said.

Tarhuna was once the eastern-based army's main military operation center during the war against the former UN-backed Government of National Accord in and around Tripoli.
