Iraq: At least 16 dead in blasts, 14 bodies found
At least 16 people died in two bombings in Baghdad on Monday, police said. In the deadliest incident, 12 people died and 46 were hurt when an Iraqi army patrol was hit by a bomb in a parked car in central Baghdad's Bab al-Muadham area, police said.
Another four people died when a suicide car bomber rammed an Iraqi army checkpoint in Ghadeer in eastern Baghdad. Two soldiers were among the dead in that explosion, which destroyed three houses and set several cars ablaze. Another 10 people were hurt.
A roadside bomb in northern Baghdad's Waziriya district injured three civilians, police said, according to Reuters.
Meanwhile, the U.S. military said on Monday it had uncovered a grave in northern Iraq containing the bodies of 14 executed people. The victims, discovered on Sunday in a grave south of Samarra, had their hands tied behind their backs and all had gunshot wounds to the head.
