Hi,
A: In the southeast of the district were buried 17 well-known martyrs.
B: In the southeast of the district 17 well-known martyrs were buried.
C: 17 well-known martyrs were buried in the southeast of the district.
( My friend is translating a Chinese TV documentary named Letters to the Future. Option A is her version.)
I think Option C is correct.How about Option A and B?

Many thanks!

    I find version (C) the most colloquial. However, in writing, you should spell out "Seventeen" in order to start the sentence with an upper-case letter rather than a digit.
