14 hurt in blasts at arms depot of Iran-backed militia in Iraq

A large fire broke out on Monday at a weapons depot run by an Iranian-backed militia group, causing explosions heard across Baghdad and injuring 14 people, authorities said.


The depot, run by a militia group under the umbrella of the Iran-backed Popular Mobilization Forces, was located inside a federal police base in the southern suburbs of Baghdad.


The facility stored short-range and Katyusha missiles, a security source said.
