Hundreds of unmarked graves found in Idaho

Workers using radar surveyed a cemetery in Hailey, Idaho, and found hundreds of unmarked graves in an area known as the "Chinese Cemetery." Authorities say that a brush fire in the 1930s destroyed a number of the markers. Officials now plan to erect a monument to the uknown dead. About 300 Chinese people lived and worked in the town in the late 1800s, including working in mines and keeping shops.
