Associated Press — A member of an Iraqi government delegation was denied entry to the European Parliament on Tuesday because he's accused of participating in the killing of Iranian exiles who live in an enclave of Iraq.
European Parliament Vice President Alejo Vidal-Quadras said in a statement that Col. Sadiq Mohammad Kazim has been summoned by the Spanish National Court for an alleged role in killings in Camp Ashraf in 2009 and 2011.
Iranians opposed to Iran's clerical regime won refuge at Camp Ashraf during the rule of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. But they have become an irritant to Iraq's new Shiite-led government, which is trying to bolster ties with Iran.
The Iraqi army raided the group's camp in April 2011, killing 34 people. About 1,200 people remain there.
