Mortar Attcks on Iran exile camp in Iraq

World News -Mortar attacks on a camp housing Iranian dissidents near Baghdad killed a number of people early on Saturday, an Iraqi security official and a United Nations spokeswoman said.

The mortars “led to a number of deaths and injuries among the residents,” said Eliana Nabaa, spokeswoman for the UN mission in Iraq. “Also a number of Iraqi policemen were injured… We cannot confirm exactly how many.”

An interior ministry official, speaking on condition of anonymity, put the toll at five dead and 40 wounded.

The Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK) said in a statement that six people were killed in 35 rockets and mortars. The mortar rounds struck at a transit camp known as Camp Liberty where some 3,000 residents who members of the MEK were moved on Iraq’s insistence, from their historic paramilitary camp of the 1980.
