Another 25 bodies found in Baghdad

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Extending an alarming trend of killings in Baghdad, Iraqi Emergency Police said 25 bodies were found throughout the capital Wednesday.

According to police, all had been shot and stripped of identification.

Since Sunday, more than 160 bodies have been recovered in Baghdad.

Separately, a 24-year-old male detainee died at Baghdad's Abu Ghraib prison Wednesday afternoon of "apparent natural causes," a U.S. military statement said.

"Detainee was found unconscious, and the medical staff immediately began CPR in order to revive the detainee," the statement said. "He was pronounced dead at 1:30 p.m. (5:30 a.m. ET) by an attending physician."

The death is under investigation.
