Two Iraqi journalists were found dead south of Baghdad on Monday a day after they were stopped by men wearing police uniforms, the manager of their television station said. The bodies of Laith al-Dulaimi and Muazaz Barood were discovered at midday near their hometown of Madain, about 20 kilometers (12 miles) southeast of the capital, said Abdul-Karim al-Mehdawi, general manager of Al-Nahrain TV, a private station. He quoted witnesses as saying the pair were driving to Madain on Sunday when they were stopped on the highway by men wearing police uniforms who took them away. Their bodies were brought to the morgue in Kut, officials there said. The latest deaths bring to at least 70 the number of journalists who have been killed in Iraq since the US-led invasion in March 2003, according to the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalism. Nearly 73 percent of them have been Iraqi.
