BUCHAREST (Reuter) - Romania's spy service has handed over files on security policemen who worked where a mass grave dating from Communist times has been opened up.

The Romanian Intelligence Service, successor to the dreaded Securitate, gave the files to prosecutors to help them unravel the mystery of some 300 corpses found in woodland near Bucharest.

Authorities began digging at the Caciulati site, some 25 miles north of the capital, early this year. Scientists believe the corpses were buried in the early years of the Communist administration which took power after the Second World War.
