Question regarding unknown certificates

I have a group of certificates listed that I am unable to delete. I
have tried using GPA and from the command line. Neither works. I did a
screen capture of these keys. This is the URL:

These appear to be listed in the "/usr/local/share/gnupg/com-certs.pem"
file on my system.

Since most of these certificates appear to be expired anyway, can I
just delete that file? I am not sure why they are being listed anyway.
What is there purpose?

I am running on a FreeBSD-8.2 amd64 system if that makes any difference.
