March madness continues unabated in Diwaniyah. First up, late news on the usual post Friday sermon Islamic rage attacks

DIWANIYA - The bullet-riddled body of a military intelligence officer was found in the centre of Diwaniya, 180 km (110 miles) south of Baghdad, police said. (Reuters),

but elsewhere in the former MND(CS) area :

Hilla- At least eleven civilians were killed and 45 were wounded on Saturday afternoon when a car bomb detonated near a Shiite mosque in north of Hilla, 100 km south of Baghdad, a police source said.(Iraqslogger)
March 25 Nothing reported from Diwaniyah but :
Hilla- Fierce clashes erupted on Sunday morning between armed groups and citizens mourning the victims of a suicide bombing at a (Shiite) mosque that killed 11 and wounded 45 on Saturday north of Hilla. (Iraqslogger)
March 26
DIWANIYA - The body of a man was found with gunshot wounds, bound and bearing signs of torture on Sunday in the southern city of Diwaniya, 180 km (110 miles) south of Baghdad, police said. (Reuters)
And its only Monday.

Update:

March 27  Several rockets are fired towards Camp Echo during th evening at about 20:20.
 (Lv MoD)
DIWANIYA - Six bodies were found in different parts of Diwaniya, 180 km (110 miles) south of Baghdad, police said. The victims had been tortured, bound and shot. (Reuters)
March 28 Several rockets are fited towards Camp Echo in the evening.
 (Lv MoD)

The Latvian MoD provides few details on events in their posts other than noting that the Latvian contingent is unharmed. 

While on the subject of details, I understand the reports of bodies with "signs of torture" mean real horror like the liberal use of power drills on the victim.  Dreadfull stuff.
