Taxi drivers found in mass grave in Iraq
Tuesday 13 September 2011
A gang of car thieves is suspected of kidnapping and killing 40 taxi drivers and burying their bodies in a mass grave.
Three suspects were arrested in Iraq last week and told police how they carried out the crimes over two years to steal the cars, according to the New York Times.
One of the gang would go to the same garage in Baghdad and ask for a lift to Dujail, 35 miles to the north, where other members killed the driver in a rural spot and stole the car, the gang reportedly told police. The investigation began after drivers at the garage reported their colleagues missing.
The suspected ringleader was arrested in a cab on his way to Dujail, the newspaper said.
