The anti-Iran terrorist group MKO has confirmed that five people arrested after last month’s riots in Tehran are members of the organization.
The Mojahedin Khalq Organization has told Amnesty International that the five were detained in the Iranian capital after the Ashura day riots on December 27.
The group says they had come from their one remaining base in Iraq.
On Friday, Tehran’s public prosecutor announced that five people detained in connection with the recent riots in Tehran are members of the terrorist group.
MKO members fled to Iraq after Iran’s Islamic Revolution. They then carried out a series of attacks across Iran, in which a large number of civilians and officials were killed.
The MKO is designated as a terrorist organization by many countries, including the United States.
