Supporters of the residents of a camp for Iranian dissidents in Iraq say they will continue their international protests demanding the US and the UN give them protection. On Wednesday, dozens of supporters around the world ended a 72-day hunger strike after one of their main demands was met – the release of 36 Camp Ashraf inmates detained by the Iraqi authorities for the past two-and-a-half months. They were seized during a raid on 28 and 29 July. Video filmed by people in Camp Ashraf appears to show Iraqi police and soldiers shooting and beating camp residents. Up to 11 inmates are reported to have been killed and hundreds wounded. Camp Ashraf was handed over to Iraqi government control at the start of 2009 by the Americans. US forces had taken control of the camp after the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
