BAGHDAD: The Iraqi foreign ministry is “following with great interest” the case of a woman who claims she was beaten by a security officer at an Iranian airport.
A video of the woman in her 50s showing injuries to her face has sparked anger among Iraqis.
The attack at Mashhad airport took place on Sunday evening, Al Arabiya reported.

In the video, the woman, who is visibly upset, says the officer hit her in the eye.
“Iraq treats all those who arrive to its land with humanity and respect,” the foreign ministry said, “and urged all countries to treat Iraqis similarly.”
