iraq-daily-roundup:-16 killed-in-attacks

At least 16 people were killed in the latest
violence:

United Nations human rights experts fear
that the Iraqi government will execute about 50 prisoners on Monday. The
offenders were convicted on terrorism-related charges, but many of these trials
appear to have been conducted unfairly. Iraq executed 21 convicts earlier this
week, and another 21 during October. The U.N. wants a moratorium on executions.

Near Kirkuk, security forces killed 16
militants
during operations in Wadi-Zghaiton and Wadi al-Khanaji.
