Grenada's Premier Seeks 1983 Coup Burial Sites

Breaking News

ST. GEORGE'S, Grenada -- Grenada's premier has called on the men convicted of leading a 1983 coup to reveal where they put the remains of slain officials, including former socialist leader Maurice Bishop.

The men who killed Bishop, four Cabinet ministers and six of their supporters have said they do not know the whereabouts of the remains, but Prime Minister Keith Mitchell said Tuesday he believes they could help solve the mystery.

The slain prime minister's mother, Alimenta Bishop, has repeatedly called for the bodies to be located for proper burial.

"They should have a conscience and come forward and release the pain of the families," Mitchell told reporters.
