Six Iraqis Killed in New Attacks
Thursday: 6 Iraqis Killed, 9 Wounded
Amnesty International asked for a moratorium on the death penalty after 26 convicts were executed this week. Previous calls from A.I. and other groups earlier this year were ignored. So far, 96 people are known to have been executed. A.I. criticized the trials where many of the executed were found guilty and suggested that they may have been tortured into confessions.
At least six Iraqis were killed and nine more were wounded.
A civilian was killed and two more were wounded during an explosion in Anna.
In Iskandariya, gunmen killed a car driver and his passenger, who works in the police forces.
A sticky bomb killed a man in Falluja.
