The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

"11 uniden­ti­fied bod­ies, likely to be the taxi driv­ers who had been miss­ing for over a year, were found in Suleimaniya on Fri­day," po­lice said.

Po­lice of Baziyan Sub-District, 20 km south of the city of Suleimaniya, re­vealed they’ve found 11 bod­ies which are be­lieved to be of the taxi driv­ers work­ing on Suleimaniya–Kirkuk route and had been miss­ing for over a year.

The source said that most of the driv­ers were from Kirkuk Prov­ince who had been killed and buried in a val­ley nearby the Sub-District of Baziyan. Two months ago, se­cu­rity forces in Suleimaniya "Asaysh" ar­rested a man sus­pected of the mur­der of the taxi driv­ers. The man is sus­pected of tak­ing the taxi cars and sold them later to the ter­ror­ist groups in Kirkuk. The man (an Ara­bic na­tion­al­ity) has con­fessed the mur­der of four driv­ers and bury­ing them in Cham­chamal District.

Last year, the vic­tims’ fam­i­lies gath­ered in front of the PUK Polit­buro in Suleimaniya, (the main author­ity in the Prov­ince), to protest and de­mand in­for­ma­tion about the fate of their miss­ing sons.
