POPRICANI, Romania, Nov. 6 (UPI) -- A Romanian historian says bones exhumed outside a rural village are those of Jewish people executed during World War II.

SAVE MONEY ON TRAVEL DEALS

A team has been digging in a forest near Popricani, about 22 miles northeast of Bucharest, where an estimated 100 bodies were buried in 1941 by troops from the pro-Nazi Romanian government.

"So far we have exhumed 16 bodies but this is just the beginning because the mass grave is very deep and we only dug up superficially", historian Adrian Cioflanca told the BBC.

Cioflanca and other researchers located the grave site after speaking with local residents who witnessed the killings.

The grave is only the second Holocaust mass grave found in Romania. The BBC said as many as 380,000 Jews died in Romanian-controlled territory during the war.
