600 bodies discovered in Mazar-e-Sharif: ICRC

A senior official of International Committee of the Red Cross on Thursday night said close to 600 bodies were discovered in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-e-Sharif, after it was abandoned by the Taleban

Olivier Durr, head of operations for central and south Asia for ICRC, said 400 to 600 bodies were found in the city after the Taleban left on November 9.

"But we cannot say whether these people had been brutally executed, or were killed as while fighting," Durr said.

Durr also would not comment on reports of massacres in Mazar-e-Sharif after the Taleban departed.

"Even before our expatriate staff entered (the city) or Afghan colleagues started to collect and bury quite a number of bodies," Durr said.

He said that of the total of 400-600 bodies, about 180 had already been buried.
