Iraq’s security forces on Friday discover a mass grave in Du jail north of Baghdad that contained the bodies of 40 men who were killed in the past two years, police officers says.
The victims were mostly taxi drivers, an interior ministry official indicated, adding that three men have been arrested and confessed to the murders. “Iraqi security forces … found 40 corpses in Al-Awarah area in east Dujail” on Friday afternoon, an officer in the Dujail police disclosed.
A lieutenant colonel in the Salaheddin provincial police confirmed that 40 corpses had been found in Al-Awarah. “The earliest victim was killed two years ago, and the latest 10 days ago,” he pointed.
