BAGHDAD (AFP) - At least two rockets struck a camp in central Iraq housing Iranian dissidents Sunday evening, a senior army officer said, as Baghdad and the UN signed a pact aimed at resolving the residents' status.

Sunday's deal had been welcomed by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and came after Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki said his government would extend a year-end deadline for the removal of the camp residents from Iraq. "Two rockets landed on Camp Ashraf last night," an Iraqi army colonel said, speaking on condition of anonymity. "The casualties are unknown because we are forbidden from entering the camp." It was not immediately clear who fired the rockets.

The group said in a statement that four rockets struck their base at 8:00 pm (1700 GMT) on Sunday evening.
