While we are still seeking detail of what occurred it appears that deadly force has been used and that a number of people have been killed or wounded. UNHCR strongly condemns this attack. The use of violence against a civilian population is unacceptable in any circumstances.
We call on the Iraqi authorities to immediately ensure the security of the residents. It is important that the violence stop and that medical help be urgently provided for the wounded.
