WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry says the U.S. “strongly condemns” a rocket attack on a Baghdad camp housing Iranian exiles.

In a statement Saturday, Kerry described the attack as an “unprovoked terrorist attack” that was “brutal, senseless and utterly unacceptable.” He says the U.S. at the highest levels has been urging Iraq’s government to provide immediate medical help and bring the terrorists to justice.

Kerry also says the U.S. remains committed to help Iraq move the exiles to a location outside Iraq, part of what he calls a “permanent and long term solution that ensures their safety.”

An Iranian exile group living in the camp reported multiple casualties when the compound, known as Camp Liberty, came under attack from rockets.
