Hundreds of people have fallen ill in a food-poisoning outbreak at the UNHCR-run Hasansham camp for displaced people near Mosul in Iraq. At least three people were reported to have died, including two children. About 800 people were affected, 200 of whom were hospitalized. Rudaw said the outbreak occurred on the evening of June 12 after a Qatari charity distributed iftar meals for 2,000 people, brought at a restaurant in Erbil. A report in the Iraq News said several people at the restaurant had been arrested.
