BAGHDAD -- Iraqi police patrol found 47 bodies in different parts of
Baghdad during the past 24 hours, a well-informed Interior Ministry source
said on Saturday.

"Our patrols collected up to 47 bodies during the past 24 hours across
Baghdad," the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

The bullet-riddled bodies were bound and blindfolded, showing signs of
torture before they were killed, the source said.

The police found at least 51 bodies on Friday and 32 on Thursday in
different parts of Baghdad.

The almost daily gruesome body findings, assassinations and explosions in
Baghdad and other Iraqi cities were seen as a major setback for the Iraqi
government's efforts to stem violence and achieve national reconciliation.
