10 bullet-riddled bodies found in Baghdad

19 September 2013, 22:04

Baghdad - The bodies of 10 young men shot in the head or chest were found on Thursday near a disused factory in the Iraqi capital, security and morgue official said.

The men, whose corpses were recovered close to the former pharmaceuticals plant at Mahamel near the Shi'ite Sadr City district, were aged between 17 and 25 and had been dead for up to two days, an army source said.

Summary executions were commonplace in Baghdad at the height of the Sunni-Shi'ite sectarian conflict in 2006 and 2007, when many thousands of people were killed in cold blood.

But this was the first time in several years that such a large number of bodies had been found in one place.
