SSP 18 Fig 2: Objects Consistent with Human Remains Buried at Alleged Mass Grave
Images progress from 17 June to 19 August; imagery by DigitalGlobe.
On 17 June 2011, DigitalGlobe satellite imagery revealed several C-shaped white bundles in the locality of northern Kadugli, known as El Shaeer. This alleged mass grave site is located 1.4 km from the Central Reserve Police training camp, 1.5 km from the UNMIS comound, and 3.4 km from the Kadugli Airport. As of 4 July, updated imagery shows that the white bundles have been moved from their previous position and a new circle of disturbed earth consistent with a slightly recessed hole and earth-covered objects in its center appears at the site. By 6 August, more irregularly-shaped white bundles are placed in the center of the hole, with more white bundles on the ground outside of the hole. Satellite imagery then shows that by 19 August, the hole has been covered completely.
