The recent discovery of the mass grave in Khasfa provides further evidence of the appalling crimes Daesh have committed against the people of Iraq. We are committed to bringing Daesh to justice for these crimes. Investigative and prosecutorial work is already underway across the world. We are working closely with the Government of Iraq and other international partners to identify further ways to take this work forward, including at the UN.
