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. This is the first independent confirmation of casualties since the raid. Iraqi authorities had claimed a smaller number of fatalities. Most of the dead had been shot, but three victims were crushed to death. The camp has been home to the People’s Mujahedeen of Iran for decades, but Iraq’s government would like to see them leave the country.
