Al-Malikiâ€™s security forces in Diyala killed an Iraqi citizen in one of the most brutal ways words can describe. The forces accused the man of being involved in Al-Qaida activities. They killed him and hung him on one of the electricity poles, making him an â€śan exampleâ€ś for others.
Some of the media mention that Hakim Al-Zamili, one of the leaders of the Al-Mahdi Militia, was responsible for the kidnapping that took the lives of more than 150 Iraqis, some of them Iraqâ€™s best academics. Al-Zamili is a prominent member of the Iraqi Parliament, representative of the Al-Sadr Party. Many Iraqis know it, but the government and parliament representatives keep silent and never mention the name of the murderers of the academics in November 2006.
