Coffins with the remains of six children, victims of the 1981 El Mozote massacre, are lined up to be handed over to their relatives in San Salvador on Wednesday. The Institute of Legal Medicine of El Salvador handed over the exhumed remains of victims of the slaughter of El Mozote, following DNA tests. In December 1981, members of the US-trained Salvadorean elite Atlacatl battalion killed more than 1,000 peasants during counter-insurgency operations in an episode known as the El Mozote Slaughter.
