Bulldozers arrive in a town south of Tripoli -- at a site that Libya's interim government believed to be a mass grave.
Body parts are found wrapped in what looks like plastic.
A full body is recovered.
The International Committee of the Red Cross said earlier this week that at least 13 mass graves have been found in Libya over the past three weeks.
SOUNDBITE: Libyan Fighter Hamed Hassan, saying: (Arabic):
"Today a mass grave was discovered for the revolutionaries that were killed by the Gaddafi brigades. We uncovered 25 corpses that were buried in a mass grave,"
It is unclear how many bodies or body parts were found at the site.
Investigations are expected to continue as Libyan authorities seek information on identities as well as the circumstances which led to the deaths.
