Police also found the bullet-riddled bodies of 10 men who showed signs of torture in several areas of Baghdad, and the body of a man who was shot in the head was found in Karbala, 50 miles south of the capital….
The spree of bombings and mortar attacks in the Baghdad area “” including eight attacks Saturday that killed at least 27 people and wounded 27 “” was an embarrassment for Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who ordered more police and army checkpoints for the city last week to restore security for its 6 million residents.
