'Nothing Left In The World Except These Bones': Yazidis Search For Mothers' Remains



Survivors of the ISIS genocide of Yazidis walk to mass graves near the village of Kocho, northern Iraq, in August 2019, on the fifth anniversary of the massacre that killed most of the men and older boys in the village.

Investigators have discovered 17 mass graves containing bodies of some of the 3,000 Yazidis killed by ISIS. For survivors, a grave with remains of older and pregnant women prompts a special anguish.
