Six killed in attack on Iranian refugees in Iraq

BAGHDAD — Rockets and mortar rounds struck a refugee camp for Iranian exiles next to Baghdad’s international airport before dawn Saturday, killing six people and wounding about 40, police and UN officials said.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the ­attack. He urged Iraqi officials to investigate and bring the ­attackers to justice, noting that the government is responsible for the safety of the camp residents.
