Gunmen lobbed four hand grenades into a United Nations office at the World Health Organisation building in Baghdad, causing damage but no casualties, the UN said last night. Iraq's official news agency INA said one of the attackers, who was captured, was an Iranian agent. It was the first reported attack on the UN in Iraq since the implementation of a food-for-oil deal started last year, easing trade sanctions imposed during the 1990-91 Gulf War.
