BAGHDAD (AP) — A United Nations official says a U.N. investigation team is visiting a contentious Iranian dissident camp in Iraq where multiple residents were killed on Sunday.
U.N. spokeswoman Eliana Nabaa said the team arrived at Camp Ashraf on Monday and was expected to return the same day.
The visit is aimed at determining how many people died Sunday and how they were killed at the Saddam Hussein-era camp northeast of Baghdad that housed about 100 members of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq dissident group.
The MEK alleges that more than 50 people were killed in violence it blames on Iraqi security forces. Iraqi officials have provided lower death tolls and have given different accounts of what happened, with some saying the bloodshed began with infighting among camp members.
