51. The way I recall, a reporter who was in the mosque during the siege
said the militants were keeping their dead there, as is mentioned in this account...
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=540&nci...

"Police said the bodies belonged to the victims of the court. But a court official, who identified himself only as Hashim, said the corpses belonged to militants killed in the recent fighting in the city."
