BAGHDAD — Iraqi officials said they unearthed a mass grave northeast of Baghdad containing dozens of bodies.
Rights Ministry official Kamil Ameen said Saturday the grave was found
in an area south of the city of Baqouba that used to be controlled by
al-Qaida in Iraq.
Ameen estimated that dozens of bodies were in
the grave but could not provide a specific figure. Iraqi news reports
put the number at 153.
