The World

September 14, 1986

Thousands of mourners shouting "Revenge! Revenge!" marched through Baghdad, Iraq's capital, in a funeral procession for 24 people killed when an Iranian missile struck the city Friday. The military command said Iraqi warplanes attacked five Iranian oil fields and later struck an army camp. Iraq also said its jets struck a "large maritime target"--the Iraqi military's usual description for an oil tanker--in the Persian Gulf. The report was not confirmed.
