Iraqi authorities confirmed on Tuesday that 38 out of 39 bodies found in an Iraqi mass grave last year were Indian construction workers. The workers were abducted when Islamic State militants overran Mosul in 2014. The bodies were found buried near the village of Badush, northwest of Mosul, in an area that Iraqi forces recaptured last July.
