Hundreds of unmarked graves have been discovered for the second time at the site of a former residential school for Indigenous children in Canada.

A First Nation in the country said on Thursday that investigators have found 751 unmarked graves at the Marieval Indian Residential School.

The discovery comes not long after the Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc Indigenous nation in British Columbia announced it had found the remains of 215 children at another former residential school.
