    Background: VARIOUS, IRAQ/IRAN

    The continuing war between Iraq and Iran has seen renewed attacks by the Iranian army, which the Iraqi's claim to have repulsed. The latest Iranian assault is believed to have taken place east of Baghdad, with the Iraqi government claiming the Iranians sustained heavy losses. Iraq said it launched a counter-attack on Iranian oil installations. The two-year-old war has caused severe loss of life to both countries, but official figures vary and have been conflicting. President Saddam Hussein of Iraq has been visiting his troops and recently awarded decorations for bravery. Iran claims to have captured two border posts within them kilometres (approximately six miles) of Mandali. Iranian troops tried to push into Iraq's territory in July, after they had stemmed the Iraqi advances but both sides have suffered heavy losses of equipment and both countries are facing severe economic hardship, as the expense of the war continues.
