Four decapitated bodies were found in Mosul today. Their identities are unknown, but there has been recent activity in the area by Army of Ansar al-Sunnah
who executed two Kurdish men by gunshots to the head
today and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's terrorist group Al Qaeda Organisation of Holy War in Iraq
that beheaded two Iraqi National Guardsmen
yesterday, November 19. The four bodies were found on Thursday and are therefore probably not from the above incidents.
US troops discovered four decapitated bodies during military operations this week to purge northern Mosul of insurgents, a military spokesman said today.
All four bodies, whose identities were not established, were found on Thursday, and have been turned over to Iraqi authorities, said Lieutenant Colonel Paul Hastings, a spokesman for Task Force Olympia.
Three of the bodies were found by the roadside in a north-eastern suburb of Mosul, the fourth in the southwestern part of the city, he said.
"Our troops came across them. They were by the roadside," Hastings said.
