Kuwait says it has found a mass grave where scores of slain Iraqi soldiers were buried during the 1991 US war with the ex-Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
The remains of the soldiers, identified from their uniforms, will be handed to Iraq through the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the official added.
The US-led forces that engaged Iraqi troops in 1991 failed to record the location of the grave site.
The ICRC had originally initiated the search in an attempt to find traces of some 600 Kuwaiti citizens and others who went missing during the so-called Persian Gulf War.
The US, aided by its allies, launched an attack against Saddam's military in the area after the ex-Iraqi dictator ordered the invasion of Kuwait in 1990.
