Iraqi paramilitary groups: five members, two 'guests' killed in Baghdad airport attack

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqi paramilitary groups said five of their members and two “guests” were killed in an air strike on their vehicles inside Baghdad International Airport, militia sources reported on early Friday, after Iraq’s Security Media Cell announced that three katyusha rockets had targeted Baghdad Airport.

The militia members were hosting “important guests” at Baghdad airport who were being driven in two militia vehicles that were struck by two rockets, said the militia sources.

Two militia sources said the two guests were also killed in the attack but declined to identify them.
