BAGHDAD, Sept 28 (KUNA) -- The bodies of a murdered Sunni Iraqi police lieutenant and his wife were recovered in Baghdad's Adhamiyah neighborhood three days ago, a US army statement said on Friday.
The couple had been abducted several days before by Sunni insurgents, the statement quoting a relative as saying, adding that the bodies were discovered dumped in a pile of trash beneath a pedestrian overpass in the Sunni-dominated neighborhood of Adhamiyah in Baghdad.
Both victims appeared to have been killed by gunshot wounds to the head.
The police lieutenant also had drill holes in his face that indicated he was tortured before being executed, said 1st Lieutenant Daniel Lake with the 3rd Squadron, 7th Cavalry Regiment of the US unit responsible for security in the Adhamiyah area.
Lake said the lieutenant and his wife; both Sunnis, were most likely targeted by Sunni terrorists associated with al-Qaeda in Iraq or Islamic Government of Iraq because of their involvement with security efforts.
Sunni-on-Sunni violence now makes up the majority of violence in northeast Baghdad, following a significant drop in sectarian violence between the Shiite and Sunni communities since the Baghdad security plan began, said Lieutenant Colonel David Oclander, executive officer of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division.
To that, another Army statement said that three Iraqi high-level government officials at Baghdad's International Airport, who were suspected of involving in insurgent acts against Iraqi and US troops, were detained.
The "corrupt officials", according to the statement, were attempting to form a network to petrify innocent Iraqi civilians, by conducting kidnappings and attacks on Iraqis and US forces. (end) mhg.hb KUNA 281606 Sep 07NNNN
