Scores of torture victims’ bodies dumped in Baghdad

The bodies of 65 men who had been tortured with power drills and then shot have been dumped around Baghdad.
Meanwhile, two car bombs and two mortar attacks killed at least 32 people and injured dozens of others. Police said 60 of the bodies were found overnight scattered around Baghdad, with the majority dumped in predominantly Sunni Arab neighbourhoods. All the bodies were bound, bore signs of torture and had been shot, said police Lt. Thayer Mahmoud. Such killings are usually the work of death squads, operated by both Sunni Arabs and Shia gangs and militias, who kidnap people and usually torture them with power drills or beat them badly before shooting them.
