Video: Outcry over Iranian deaths in Iraq


There has been an international outcry after bloodshed at an exiled Iranian opposition community based in Iraq.

The People’s Mujahideen of Iran claims 33 of its number were killed by Iraqi forces who fired indiscriminately on defenceless people in Camp Ashraf about 65 kilometres north east of Baghdad.

An Iraqi defence ministry spokesman said only three died, and the troops were reacting to what he called inappropriate behaviour, attacks and provocation. He said there was no gunfire.
