Iraqi police say they have found in the space of one day 60 bodies of people bound, tortured and shot in the capital, Baghdad.
They were found all over the city, from Sunni areas in the west to Shia districts in the east - but most were found in largely Sunni west Baghdad.
Sectarian killings are not unusual in the city but this is a large number for one day, a BBC correspondent says.
Meanwhile, car bombs killed at least 22 people in Baghdad.
One device near the national sports stadium in the eastern Shaab district exploded in a parked car during the morning rush hour, killing 14 people including two policemen and wounding at least 57.
A bomb later went off near a police patrol in the Zayona district, also in the east, killing eight people and injuring at least 17.
