Iraq Attack on Iranian Pilgrims Kills 6, Injures 31

July 22 (Bloomberg) — Six Iranians were killed and 31 were injured in a shooting in Iraq, where they planned to visit Shiite Muslim shrines, Iran’s state-run Mehr news agency said.

The attack, killing five women and a man, took place late yesterday near Khanaqin, an Iraqi town northeast of Baghdad, on a route to the capital from the border with Iran, an official
from Iran’s pilgrimage organization told state-run Fars news. The pilgrims probably were from the Iranian city of Mashhad, he said. The bodies of the dead will be handed over to Iran today, a local governor told Mehr. The wounded will also return today.
