Authorities found the mutilated bodies of 60 men in Baghdad in the 24-hours ending Tuesday morning, likely the latest victims of the sectarian death squads that roam the capital. The bullet-riddled bodies all had their hands and feet bound and showed signs of torture, hallmarks of death-squad killings, police 1st Lt. Mohamed Khayon said. The victims ranged in age from between 20 to 50-years-old, he said. Their bodies had been dumped in several neighborhoods of the capital. Sectarian death squads have killed thousands in recent months and Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is coming under increased pressure to find an end to the violence.
