: "U.S. Catches Iraqi `death Squad` in Action
BAGHDAD, Iraq, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- The U.S. military has confirmed rumors of Iraqi police death squads after stopping a uniformed squad of 22 officers about to execute a Sunni Muslim.
'We have found one of the death squads. They are part of the police force,' U.S. Maj. Gen. Joseph Peterson told the Chicago Tribune. Peterson said the Interior Ministry traffic policemen were arrested in late January at an Iraqi army checkpoint in northern Baghdad and when asked what they were doing, said they were taking a prisoner away for execution. 'The amazing thing is ... they tell you exactly what they`re going to do,' Peterson said.
He said four of the men were being held at Baghdad`s Abu Ghraib prison in U.S. custody and the other 18 were in another jail, the BBC reported.
On Monday, the bodies of four unidentified men were found in Baghdad. They had been handcuffed, blindfolded and shot in the head, the BBC said. Iraq`s Interior Ministry has launched an investigation into the death squads, the report said."
