Iraqi forces detain hit squad leaders-US military
Iraqi security forces detained two suspected death squad leaders, one of them accused of torturing victims at a Shi'ite mosque, in a raid in southern Baghdad on Sunday, the U.S. military said.

The two men "exercise control over all death squad cell activity" in three Baghdad neighborhoods, including the notoriously violent Doura district, the military said.

"One of these individuals also allegedly controls a Baghdad husseiniya (Shi'ite mosque) where he tortures and kills Iraqi citizens," their statement said.

Iraqi troops supported by U.S. advisers captured the men during a raid on a house in the southern Rasheed district, part of a U.S. and Iraqi crackdown on death squads that American officials say are fuelling sectarian violence ravaging Baghdad.
