Kuwait-Iraq clash

Kuwaiti border guards returned fire after they came under attack from Iraqi border guards but there were no casualties, the Kuwaiti daily Al-Anbaa said, AFP reports from Kuwait City.

Iraqi police at the Sanam post fired 20 shots at the Umm Sudeira post on the Kuwait side of the border late on Friday. UN forces patrolling the demilitarised zone refused to comment.

Iraqi forces destroyed several villages and killed hundreds of people in an attack on Shia villages in the southern marshes last month, the opposition Supreme Assembly of the Islamic Revolution in Iraq said in Tehran.
