MKO terrorists arrested in Iraq

Iraqi police has announced the arrest of a number of Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) members in a raid on rogue elements in Karbala.  Karbala police spokesperson, Rahman Mshawi said four of the fifteen detainees are affiliated with the MKO terrorists. Other sources claim six members of the group were arrested in the raid.  The European Union, the United States and other members of the international community have blacklisted the MKO as a terrorist organization.  The group, which assisted Saddam in the massacre of thousands of innocent Iraqis, is responsible for several acts of terror in Iran including the 1994 bombing of Imam Reza’s holy shrine in Mashhad.
