Two bodies found south of Baghdad

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) _ The bodies of a woman and a man, his with a severed head, were found early Sunday south of Baghdad, police said.

Police Lt. Hussein Rizouqi said the bodies looked like those of Westerners but no identification was found on the corpses which were discovered in the area of Youssifiyah, 12 miles south of Baghdad.

The man's head had been severed and was tied to his body while the woman was shot in the head, the police officer said.

The corpses were brought to the hospital in Mahmoudiyah, 25 miles south of the Iraqi capital. Insurgents frequently stage shootings and bombings in the area.
