At least three Iraqis were killed and 32 more were wounded in the latest attacks. Also, the U.N. confirmed a significant number of fatalities stemming from last week’s raid on an Iranian dissident camp in Diyala.
A spokesman for the United Nations confirmed that 28 people were killed in a raid on Camp Ashraf last week. Another six known dead have not been located yet.
