KABUL -- A mass grave containing remaining of over 30 bodies have been discovered in Kunduz province north of Afghanistan, a local official said Tuesday.

"These bodies which speak from barbaric wars during past decades were found in Ali Abad district on Monday," Habibullah Mutasim, the governor of Ali Abad told Xinhua.

He also insisted these people were massacred some 30 years ago when the Moscow-backed regime was in power in Afghanistan.

The locals, he added, want the authorities to identify and punish those responsible for the massacre.

Afghanistan has experienced bloody foreign invasions, wars and factional fighting over the past three decades and so far dozens of mass graves have been discovered in different parts of the country.
