Iraqi Forces Stood By During Massacre:
Iraqi forces are accused of standing idly by while gunmen sprayed grenades and automatic weapons fire in a market south of Baghdad on Monday, killing at least 50 people, most of them Shiites.

Women and children were among the dead and wounded in the assault in Mahmoudiya, hospital officials said...

Mahmoudiya is the same town in which four U.S. soldiers and a former soldier are accused of raping and murdering a teenage girl on March 12.
