Sixty bodies have been found scattered across the Iraqi capital Baghdad, police there have said.
A car bomb has also exploded near a Sunni mosque in a southern district of the city, killing 10 people.

The attack comes a day after 10 people were killed in a car bombing at a market in the capital.

Violence has grown between Iraq's majority Shia Muslims and the Sunni minority, who dominated the country until the fall of Saddam Hussein.

Executions

The 60 bodies, who were all men, were found in various parts of the city over a 24-hour period, defence and interior ministry officials said on Tuesday.
