A mass grave of Jews killed by Romanian troops during World War II was reportedly discovered in northeast Romania.

Sixteen bodies of an expected more than 100, were found in the mass grave in a forest near the village of Popricani, the Elie Wiesel National Institute for Studying the Holocaust in Romania announced on Nov. 5.

It is surmised that there are more than 100 Jewish men, women children buried at the site, based on eyewitnesses to the 1941 shooting.

Some 15,000 Romanian Jews were killed during WWII in mass shootings, in labor camps or on trains heading to death camps.
