"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

The remains of 15,000 people killed by the regime of Saddam Hussein have been found in mass graves in the central city of Hilla, the Iraqi National Congress (INC) said.

Entifadh Qanbar, a spokesman for the group led by US-backed Ahmed Chalabi, said: "In the last week, four sites have been discovered in Al-Hilla city alone, with approximately 15,000 bodies."

He said that locals in Hilla, 60 miles south of the capital Baghdad and the site of ancient Babylon, were trying to identify their dead.

He asked the American-led coalition's Office for Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance (ORHA), non-governmental organisations and human rights groups for help in identifying the remains.
