The British and Australian defense ministries announced they will begin DNA testing of remains from a mass grave dug during World War I, reports CNN. The grave is located in Fromelles, France and was the site of a battle between British and Australian troops and German troops during which 2,300 British and Australian soldiers died. The grave is estimated to hold about 300 bodies. The British defense ministry says they have recovered enough DNA form bones and teeth to do testing and that parts of uniforms they unearthed will also aid in identification.
