Photos of Iranian prisoners in Iraq

In November 1988, the first POW exchange between Iran and Iraq took place, but the arrangement ended soon after due to disagreements over the number of POWs involved (ibid.; Los Angeles Times 26 Dec. 1989). In February 1989, Iran announced it would release 260 sick Iraqi POWs on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution (TASS 9 Feb. 1989).
