7 dead in blast; Iraqi government reports on Iranians killed

BAGHDAD (AP) - Iraqi police and hospital officials say a bomb has exploded in a building used by a Sunni-backed political group north of Baghdad.

At least seven people have been killed and another 10 have been wounded.

Elsewhere, Iraqi officials say six Iranians have died in two days of clashes with Iraqi security forces at a camp north of Baghdad that houses members of an exiled Iranian opposition group.

Government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh told The Associated Press the six died at Camp Ashraf. He says authorities are investigating and that 35 people from the camp were arrested.

Al-Dabbagh's statement today is the first government confirmation of causalities at the settlement of the People's Mujahedeen Organization of Iran.
