The bodies of 49 Iraqi army recruits have been found near the town of Baquba, north-east of Baghdad, according to police.
The bodies were laid out in four rows with about 12 bodies in each row, Gen Walid Al-Assawi, commander of the Diyala provincial police, said.

"After inspection, we found out that they were shot after being ordered to lie down on the earth," he said.

People discovered the bodies after seeing the soldiers being rounded up.

Thirty-seven bodies were found on Saturday, and another 12 on Sunday.

Gen Al-Assawi said all were members of the new Iraqi army and were training at Kirkush military camp in Baladruz.

They were apparently leaving the camp on leave when they were captured and killed.

Local people said they considered the area, near the Iranian border, to be relatively safe.
