They were welcomed by the officials at the border. IRNA reported from Qasr-e Shirin: a group of 100 former MKO members returned to Iran via Khosravi border in the city of Qasr-e Shirin. The "repentant ex-members" of the Mujahedeen Khalq fled their camp in Iraq and appealed to the Red Cross for assistance in returning to Iran, Shahriar Haidari, governor of the Iran-Iraq border area of Qasr-e Shirin, told the news agency. Haidari said 133 others have also applied to return and are expected next week. Local officials, contacted by The Associated Press, refused to provide more details.
