Reports say, hundreds of corpses of Islamic State fighters have lain stored for the past year in a row of refrigerated containers in the Libyan city of Misrata awaiting a final decision on their fate.
“The temperature must be kept at between -18 and -20 (Celsius, 0.4 to -4 Fahrenheit) for the bodies to remain conserved,” said Ali Tuwaileb at a high security anti-organised crime complex in the city.

“As you can see, we don’t have the means. This is where we took samples for DNA tests and where we photographed the corpses,” said Tuwaileb, who is in charge of the facility.
