·1-min read

Investigators have found more than 750 unmarked graves at the site of a former indigenous school in Canada.

The discovery of the 751 graves follows the news that the remains of 215 children were found at a different another nearby school.

It comes as Bobby Cameron, chief of the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous First Nations, warned how he expected more graves to be found on residential school grounds in Canada.

He vowed not to stop "until we find all the bodies", describing the tragedy as a "crime against humanity, an assault on First Nations."

The 751 bodies were found at the Marieval Indian Residential School, open from 1899 until 1997, where Cowessess is now located.

The reserve is about situated about 87 miles east of Regina, the capital of Saskatchewan, in western Canada.
