IRAQ: Iran Blamed For Missile Attack

Iraq said Iran had fired 56 Scud missiles at camps inside Iraq belonging to an Iranian rebel group, the People's Mujahedeen Organization. The group said one member had been killed, along with several Iraqi civilians. The rebels oppose Iran's clerical rulers and launch frequent attacks from Iraq, where they have bases near the border equipped with tanks, heavy guns and helicopter gunships. (Reuters)
