Iraq Daily Roundup: 16 Killed in Attacks

(ThisDay | Iraq News Now)- At least 16 people were killed in the latest

violence:

United Nations human rights experts fear

that the Iraqi government will execute about 50 prisoners on Monday.

The

offenders were convicted on terrorism-related charges, but many of these trials

appear to have been conducted unfairly.

Iraq executed 21 convicts earlier this

week, and another 21 during October.

The U.N.

wants a moratorium on executions.

Near Kirkuk, security forces killed 16

militants during operations in Wadi-Zghaiton and Wadi al-Khanaji.
