Two Iraqis were killed and a third was wounded Wednesday in a US-British air raid on Basra in southern Iraq, an Iraqi military spokesman said.

The spokesman, quoted by the official INA news agency, said US and British warplanes bombed "civilian and services (public) installations" in Basra, killing Riad Nahi and Murtada Abdul Amir and wounding a third man, Amjad Rahim.

He said Iraqi anti-aircraft gunners "forced the US and British warplanes to flee to their bases in
Saudi Arabia and Kuwait."
