Barbarism. “Dead children found in Sunni mass grave,” from Reuters:
THE bodies of at least 30 people, including women and children, have been found in a mainly Sunni Arab area of Baghdad, police and government officials said.
An “Awakening Council” of local leaders, which oversees neighbourhood policing, discovered at least 30 decomposing bodies in the Hay Asia area of Doura in southern Baghdad, an Interior Ministry official said.
The notoriously violent neighbourhood of Doura has been a stronghold of Sunni Islamist al-Qaeda militants.
The bodies were moved to a mosque and then taken to a police station, the official said.
He said they were found in several locations in and around houses.
A police source said the bodies, discovered on Friday, included at least three women and four children.
