ARMY BLAMED. IRAQ MASSACRES. LOOTING 13Y BEDOUINS. LONDON. Aueust 28. The "News Chronicle" claims to I have received from trustworthy sources in Bagdad information proving that, despite the Iraq Government's denials, the recent massacres in Iraq were executed not by Kurds, but by the Iraq Army. Baqir Sidky, it is asserted, butchered at least 700 Assyrians, all of whom were unarmed, and many of whom had not participated in the Syrian expedition. "The Kurds, who at present are em- ployed as emergency police to disarm individuals," continues the "News Chronicle," "usually kill in order to disarm them, but little news is avail- able concerning their activities. The | Iraq forces arc the real criminals. Bedouins also are engaged in sporadic I looting, chiefly in the removal of crops from neighbouring Christian villages." | CALCUTTA, August 28. Tile veil is gradually being lifted"! from recent events in Iraq. There now is no doubt that a massacre took place in the village of Simel, 40 mil...
