BBC investigates thousands of unmarked graves in Kashmir

The disputed region of Kashmir has long been a flashpoint for strained relations between India and Pakistan. The recent discovery of 6,000 bodies in unmarked graves in Kashmir’s India-administered area has underscored the conflict’s human toll. Who are these people and what happened to them?

For the BBC program Assignment, Jill McGivering reports from Kashmir.

Note: Worldview aired part of this report last week, but it was interrupted when WBEZ cut to breaking news coverage of Rob Blagojevich’s sentencing.
