Turkey searches remains of 100's of civilians disappeared during the Kurdish separatist conflict 1990's

The dig began in the midst of a dust storm. Under armed guard, a team of excavators opened up a disused well shaft behind an abandoned roadside restaurant in south-eastern Turkey. They were searching for the remains of hundreds of civilians who disappeared at the height of the Kurdish separatist conflict in this region in the 1990s. Many were last seen with members of Turkey's security forces.
