Yazidis volunteer to protect mass graves after no one invests in protecting them

Another failure of the central government, local authorities and the international community. Yazidis reportedly volunteer to protect mass graves near Kocho, one of the villages that ISIS sought to exterminate. According to the report in a Yazidi online site and tweeted by Kristina Alicia “The Iraqi government is not serious about taking actions towards the 71 mass graves of Yazidi victims, and due to this, a youth group of 20 Yazidis based in Kocho village; who are the relatives of the victims; are protecting 12 mass graves in the village.”
