Dozens of corpses found as US pledges more troops for Baghdad
by Sabah Jerges
BAGHDAD (AFP) - Dozens of corpses were found across Baghdad, as Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki launched a fresh peace bid and the US pledged more troops to help restore stability in the Iraqi capital.
At least 39 bodies were recovered from across the country, bringing to more than 150 the number of people killed execution-style in Iraq in the past four days amid raging sectarian conflict between the newly empowered Shiite majority and the ousted Sunni Arab elite.
In rebel attacks at least eight people were killed Saturday.
Maliki called on some 1,700 academics and civil rights activists gathered for a conference in the capital to back his efforts to stem the fighting through a national reconcilation plan.
"We should keep aside our differences to build bridges, and Iraq's civil society should work to implement a policy of concord," Maliki urged the audience in Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone -- the seat of the Iraqi government and the US military headquarters.
He said the meeting was part of his national reconciliation plan aimed at restoring security and the only way to "defy terror."
"Reconciliation is the only thorough and sound way of thinking, and offers a high sense of responsibility. He who has no such characteristics must keep away from the process."
Civil society groups, he added, held the "responsibility to end sectarianism and racism. They are responsible for spreading freedom and democracy."
Maliki's comments were greeted by a call from the audience of: "Yes, yes to Iraq. No, no to terror."
Iraq's junior minister for civil society, Adel al-Asaadi, said the government's peace plan "was a valuable opportunity and should not be missed."
Many of the participants vowed to support peace.
"We raise our voice and urge rival parties to stop the fighting and create an atmosphere void of terror," said Ibtisam Abdel Razzak of the Iraqi Women's Federation.
The meeting marked Maliki's second major attempt to reach out to influential sectors of society for support for the plan he launched earlier this year.
Last month, he met hundreds of tribal leaders who later signed a pact of honour to end sectarian violence.
But since that meeting, communal bloodletting has surged in Baghdad with hundreds of people killed and their bullet-riddled bodies dumped on the streets.
In an effort to rein in the violence which has raged alongside persistent anti-US attacks by Sunni Arab insurgents, the United States military said it will divert some of the 30,000 troops in the restive Al-Anbar province to Baghdad.
"The main effort is Baghdad. And we must ensure that we weight the main effort," Lieutenant General Peter Chiarelli told reporters late Friday.
Without giving actual numbers, Chiarelli -- the number two US commander in Iraq -- said the shift of troops will not affect operations in Anbar, where the military faces a stiff challenge from Sunni rebels and terror group Al-Qaeda.
Iraqi authorities, meanwhile, are planning to dig trenches around the capital to thwart the movement of rebels and death squads.
"We will surround the city with trenches," interior ministry spokesman Brigadier General Abdel Karim Khalaf told AFP on Friday.
"Entry to the capital will be permitted through 28 roads as against 21 at the moment, but at the same time we will seal off dozens of other minor roads with access to Baghdad."
In rebel violence Saturday, a trio of bombs killed three people and wounded dozens in Baghdad.
Two Iraqi soldiers were killed and two policemen wounded when a booby-trapped car was blown up as security forces arrived to remove a body placed inside the vehicle, a security official said.
In another attack, a suicide bomber blew up a vehicle, killing one civilian and wounding 22.
Three people, including two policemen, were killed in the restive city of Baquba, northeast of Baghdad, while a civilian was killed each in the northern city of Mosul and in the southern town of Karbala.
The US military also announced the death of a soldier, taking its losses in Iraq since the March 2003 invasion to 2,678, according to an AFP count based on Pentagon figures.
So far this month, the US military has already lost 27 servicemen in Iraq.
