Aided by wartime photos, the Austrian government has identified at least two mass graves of Nazi victims.

The mass graves are located underneath an army sports field in the southern city of Graz. Government officials say they contain about 70 bodies.

The victims were concentration camp inmates and others, all killed by the SS to eliminate witnesses to Nazi atrocities shortly before Soviet troops arrived.

The graves were identified from wartime photos, made from U.S. bombers, showing open graves and bodies.
