Children find 10 corpses in Baghdad
BAGHDAD: Children discovered the handcuffed and blindfolded corpses of 10 unidentified young men in eastern Baghdad on Thursday, apparently killed by gunshots to the head, Iraqi police said.
Police said residents told them unusual vehicle movements to and from an abandoned building in the area had caught the attention of the children, who waited until the cars had left to investigate.
“Several kids climbed over the wall of the building to enter and they found the 10 bodies inside one of its rooms,” said a police officer involved in the investigation.
It was not clear who was behind the killings. Iraq has also witnessed several incidents suggesting that Shia militias, which have so far stayed out of the violence, may once again be getting involved.
A further 10 people were killed on Thursday in two roadside bombings: one inside a market in Abu Ghraib, west Baghdad, and the second near a fridge repair shop in al-Nasr wal-Salam, around 15km east of Falluja city, where eight people died. reuters
