Police have found 65 bodies scattered around the Iraqi capital, the majority dumped in predominantly Sunni Arab areas of Baghdad, officials said. All the bodies were bound, bore signs of torture and had been shot, police 1st Lt. Thayer Mahmoud said. Such killings are usually the work of death squads, operated by both Sunni Arabs and Shi'ites, who kidnap people, usually torture them with power drills and then shoot them.
