Mojahedin Khalq leaders face arrest in Iraq

An Iraqi government spokesman says arrest warrants have been issued for some leaders of an anti-Iran terrorist group based in Iraq.

MKO leaders face arrest in IraqAli al-Dabbagh held a press briefing in Baghdad on Thursday and said the order had been issued because leaders of the Mojahedin Khlaq Organization (MKO) have interfered in the domestic affairs of Iraq and threatened some Iraqi officials by phone.

The Iraqi cabinet and main political parties demand the expulsion of members of the terrorist group from the country.

Iraqi officials say the group is playing a significant role in promoting violence and insecurity in the war-torn country.

Dabbagh added that Iraqi security forces have provided proof of their criminal activities.

The MKO is blacklisted by many countries including EU member states as a terrorist organization.

Additionally, the group has claimed responsibility for several terror attacks inside Iran. They were also involved in the massacre of Iraqis under Saddam Hussein’s regime.
