However, an official with Iraq’s Interior Ministry said only 15 people were wounded by national police during a raid led by security forces at Camp Ashraf on orders from the government to take control of the city.

The official said residents were beaten with batons, but did not confirm any fatalities at the camp — home to the People’s Mujahedeen Organization of Iran.
