BAGHDAD - An Iraqi Shi'ite militia said on Thursday it had fired six mortar bombs into Saudi Arabia's desert as a "warning message" to the kingdom to stop "interfering" in Iraqi affairs.

"The goal was to send a warning message to Saudis to tell them that their border stations and patrol are within our range of fire," Wathiq al-Batat, commander of al-Mukhtar Army militia, told Reuters by telephone. Batat said the militia had also been angered by Saudis and Kuwaitis who he said had insulted the daughter of the Prophet Mohammad.
