A senior Iraqi military official said Wednesday that Iraqi forces have discovered 16 corpses in the basement shelter of a building in a Sunni-dominated area of Baghdad. Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi told The Associated Press that the remains, discovered in the Fadhl area of downtown Baghdad on Monday, were recovered and taken to the morgue on Tuesday. Al-Moussawi blamed the killings on militants with al-Qaida in Iraq, who controlled the neighborhood until they were driven out about a month ago. The discovery was based on a tip, he said.
