Residents of a town north of Baghdad found 12 corpses with execution-style bullet wounds Monday, after fighting between rival Sunni insurgent groups that could eventually unravel the coalition that seized much of the north and west of the countryPolice in Muqdadiya, a town 80 kilometers northeast of the capital, said residents from the nearby town of Saadiya found the corpses Monday after intense fighting overnight between ISIS and the Naqshbandi Army, a group led by Saddam allies.Residents say the town is a stronghold of Naqshbandi Army fighters who supported ISIS when it first swept into the area, but have since clashed with the group.The Saadiya residents brought the corpses to police in Muqdadiya because the police in their town fled on June 10 when the insurgents swept in.Local government official Ahmad al-Zarghosi, who also fled, told Reuters that he estimated 90 percent of the town had fled north.
