Iraqi soldiers say they've found at least 12 bodies in a mass grave south of Baghdad. Associated Press Television News footage shows Iraqi troops and civilians combing a deserted area and digging in dusty soil with shovels. At least three severely decomposed bodies could be seen unearthed from side-by-side graves. Iraqi Maj. Faisal Ali Hussein says he's found 12 bodies so far, all unidentified and some in handcuffs. The grave was found Wednesday in Latifiyah, a mixed Sunni-Shiite area about 30 kilometers south of the Iraqi capital.
