Scores, including two US troops, killed in Iraq
In Iraq, the mutilated bodies of 60 men were found in Baghdad in the 24-hours ending Tuesday morning, the AP reported. The bullet-riddled bodies all had their hands and feet bound and showed signs of torture, police 1st Lieutenant Mohamed Khayon said.
The victims ranged in age from between 20 to 50-years-old, he said. Their bodies had been dumped in several neighbourhoods of the capital.
Meanwhile, a deadly bombing in the capital killed 10. The victims of the midday bombing in the primarily Sunni neighborhood of Dora in south Baghdad were among at least 17 who died in attacks around Iraq.
The U.S. command also announced the deaths of two more American troops, one killed Monday on patrol in Baghdad and the other near Tikrit on Sunday when a roadside bomb blew up next to his vehicle.
