Iraqi warplanes staged a rare daylight attack on the Iranian capital of Tehran and struck at six other cities as part of Baghdad’s stepped-up air offensive. Iran said there were no casualties in the strike on the capital but that 78 Kurdish refugees were killed and 120 wounded in an Iraqi air attack on a camp in northwest Iran. Iran said that in retaliation, it shelled several Iraqi military and industrial targets, including the port of Basra.
