Question of the Day
More graves found in killing field
ZAHAMM —The number of bodies found in shallow graves northeast of Baghdad neared 70 yesterday as volunteers from eight villages near the town of Himbus continued to excavate an abandoned pomegranate orchard said to have been an al Qaeda killing field.
The remains of seven people who appeared to have been executed late last year were found in two graves in the orchard on the outskirts of Zahamm village. One grave contained three bodies, the other four.
Like decomposing bodies or skeletal remains found earlier, the victims showed signs of having been bound and then shot in the head. Nine remains were found on Wednesday in the orchard.
Karzai hints at second term
KABUL — Afghan President Hamid Karzai hinted yesterday that he plans to run for a second term, saying he still has goals to accomplish.
The comments were his first public indication that he will run for re-election next year despite discontent over his government, which is widely seen as weak.
Explosion hits foreigners’ complex
SAN’A — An explosion shattered windows late yesterday at a housing complex used by foreign companies in Yemen’s capital, but no one was hurt, security officials said.
The blast went off on the southern side of San’a in an upscale neighborhood that houses Western diplomats, including Americans, said three security officials.
An official who described himself as the head of security in the area said the blast was caused by multiple “projectiles.” The only damage was broken windows, he said, adding that no one was injured.
