Torture and Execution in Iraq

Three years into the war, Bush predicts more violence but also plans to begin bringing troops home by the year’s end.

A new round of sectarian violence struck Iraq this week, as police found 87 shot and strangled bodies buried in shallow graves around Baghdad. The bodies were found just a day after explosions killed 58 people and wounded almost 300 in the Shiite slum of Sadr City. Most of the buried bodies bore gruesome evidence of torture, and appear to have been executed by Shiite death squads now engaged in a retaliatory struggle with Sunni insurgents.
