Slovak soldiers in Iraq under attack, no injuries

THREE mortars have been fired on the coalition camp Charlie at Al Hillah, Iraq, where Slovak military engineers are positioned, the news wire SITA wrote.

One landed in an uninhabited area within the camp and two others landed outside the camp.

The attack has not claimed any material or human losses and all Slovak soldiers in Iraq are in good condition.

Slovakia has deployed about 100 military engineers to Iraq and is not considering their withdrawal.

"It would be irresponsible towards Iraqi citizens," claimed the Slovak Foreign Affairs Ministry.
