The bodies of 80 people, many showing signs of torture, were discovered in Iraq on Saturday, police and morgue officials reported. Some 71 of those turned up in Baghdad, including 27 bodies discovered not far north of the heavily fortified Green Zone, police said. A police official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information, said the 27 bodies were discovered in the area surrounding Sheik Marouf Square, about 3 kilometers (2 miles) north of the Green Zone, home to the U.S. and British embassies, the Iraqi government and hundreds of American forces. Police called for the Iraqi army to help remove the bodies from the dangerous Haifa Street location because the area was too dangerous for the mostly lightly armed police force.
