At least five people have been killed in a dissident camp in Baghdad after a rocket attack. The United Nations mission in Iraq said it was aware of a number of deaths.
It’s understood one of the dead was a woman while over 20 have been wounded in the attack. It struck at a former US military compound, “Camp Liberty”.
Members of the People’s Mujahideen Organisation of Iran – the PMOI had been moved to the camp by Iraqi authorities from a base given to them by Sadam Hussein.
The group claims it had been stopped from taking the wounded to hospital. The accusation was denied by Iraqi officials.
Members of the PMOI have called for the overthrow of Iran’s clerical leaders and want to be seen as an Iranian opposition.
