Two hundred corpses, including those of people believed to have been executed by the ISIS group, were found near the Syrian city of Raqa, a local official and a war monitor said.
The mass grave contained the bodies of five men in orange jumpsuits of the kind typically worn by ISIS hostages, Yasser al-Khamees and the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
More bodies could be uncovered as search operations continue, Khamees said.
