Allawi shot prisoners in cold blood July 23, 2004 8:36 PM

The following I picked up via Democracy Now, the article was printed in The Sydney Morning Herald: http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2004/07/16/1089694568757.html?from=top5&oneclick=true Allawi shot prisoners in cold blood: witnesses By Paul McGeough in Baghdad July 17, 2004 Iyad Allawi, the new Prime Minister of Iraq, pulled a pistol and executed as many as six suspected insurgents at a Baghdad police station, just days before Washington handed control of the country to his interim government, according to two people who allege they witnessed the killings. They say the prisoners - handcuffed and blindfolded - were lined up against a wall in a courtyard adjacent to the maximum-security cell block in which they were held at the Al-Amariyah security centre, in the city's south-western suburbs. They say Dr Allawi told onlookers the victims had each killed as many as 50 Iraqis and they "deserved worse than death".  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
