Namibia Requests International Forensic Assistance For Mass Graves Investigation

Namibian president Hifikepunye Pohamba has requested help from international forensic experts in the investigation of recently discovered apartheid-era mass graves. They are thought to date from the South African occupation of Namibia, which ended in 1990. The president asked people with information on possible sites of graves to come forward, saying no one providing information about the killings will be punished.

Namibian information minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah talked with English to Africa reporter Peter Clottey from the capital, Windhoek.
