    Background: NEAR BASRA, IRAQ

    As the Gulf War between Iran and Iraq flares up once more, fighting is reported to have intensified around the Iraqi port of Basra. Iranian troops pushed into Iraq, accompanied by calls from Teheran for the overthrow of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. But Iraq said on July 15 that it had driven Iranian troops out of Iraqi territory. Iraqi military sources said they had succeeded in "cleansing the soil of the homeland of Iranian forces". Some 450 Iranian prisoners of war were said to have been taken to Basra. The Iranians, denied their troops had been pushed out of Iraq and said its army was seven kilometres from Basra.
