Funeral kidnap victims found dead

Police in Iraq have found the corpses of 14 Sunni men abducted from a town near the capital, Baghdad, by gunmen in military uniforms.

Police officers found the corpses in an orchard near the Sunni-dominated town of Mishahda. Officials said the men had been shot dead.

Mishahda is about 20 miles north of Baghdad.

Authorities said gunmen wearing military uniforms kidnapped the men from a funeral last night. Men from the same family are among the dead.
