Can anyone recommend an appropriate datum to use with northern Iraq?

I've found references to the "Kabala Datum," but no specifications. Also seen references to ED50, but that is a datum designed for western Europe after World War 1. And again, no specs on the ED50.

Thanks,

Brody.

Uh, how about WGS84?

Besides ED50, which has been replaced by WGS84/GRS80, there is also FD 1958 Iraq, but it might be more southern than northern, not sure:

FD 1958
Speriod: Clarke 1880 RGS
Axis: 6378249.145
Flattening: 293.465

but both are so old i wouldn't consider using them.
