Ten young men were found shot to death Thursday in the eastern section of Baghdad, Iraqi police sources told Efe.
The victims' hands were bound and each had been shot in the head.
The discovery was made during a routine police patrol in the capital's al-Maamel neighborhood.
Medical examiners are working to identify the dead, described by police as males ranging in age from 18-25.
Separately, seven people were injured in a roadside bombing in the al-Hasua area, 30 kilometers (19 miles) west of Baghdad, the police sources said, adding that the blast damaged parked vehicles and nearby buildings.
More than 800 people died last month in Iraq as a result of political or sectarian violence, bringing the civilian death toll for the year so far to around 5,000, the U.N. mission in Baghdad said. EFE
