Mass grave found northwest of Baghdad
by UPI

BAGHDAD -- Iraqi and U.S. troops on an anti al-Qaida mission northwest of Baghdad found a grave containing at least 22 corpses, the military said Tuesday.

The find was made in the Lake Tharthar region, which straddles Anbar and Salaheddin provinces, CNN reported.

A statement from the Iraqi army said it was "investigating the mass grave to determine the identities of the deceased and the causes of death for notification of their families."

The al-Qaida mission began Sunday and has resulted in 30 arrests and the dismantlement of two car-bomb assembly sites, the report said.

In Baghdad, two bombs targeting a U.S. convoy went off within minutes Tuesday, Kuwait's KUNA news agency reported. Three civilians were injured but there was no indication that U.S. troops were injured, the report said.

Elsewhere, a member of the regional government of Nineveh, 250 miles north of Baghdad, was assassinated by gunmen in an attack Monday, officials said. The official's convoy came under fire north of Mosul, killing him and wounding a bodyguard, KUNA said.
