A mass grave believed to contain 4,000 people has been discovered in the outskirts of Mosul, Iraq. The Khasfa sinkhole was found five miles outside the northern city where US-backed Iraqi soldiers are in a months-long offensive against Isis. Bodies are believed to have been dumped in the natural depression during 2014, according to local villagers, Iraqi police and human rights organisations.
