Security sources in southern Iraq reported that a number of MKO members being supported by US forces have been settled in Basra.
These MKO members (the number of whom is not clear) have been placed in former palace of Saddam Hussein in Basra and several US forces escort them.
British soldiers used to stay in the palace during past 3 years.
The settlement of MKO members in Basra occurs when US forces have come close to the Iranian border in Shalamcheh.
Earlier also, a number of MKO members were cooperating with British forces and Saddam’s Estekhbarat (secret service) on Iran; they trained terrorists to sabotage in Khuzestan province.
