No news is at hand in recent days on the fate of 250 members of the terrorist Mujahideen Khalq Organization (MKO) who have been urging to leave Iraq and return to Iran as a priority, according to former MKO officials who have fled to Europe from Iraq. The former MKO officials believe that probably the group might have either been trapped in MKO detention camps inside the US army protected garrisons in Iraq or might have been subject to organizational duels and been killed. The commander of the dissolved Raad group, affiliated to the military wing of the MKO, identified only as Masood Gh. told reporters here on Tuesday that he was seriously concerned about the fate of his former friends in Iraq. The dissolved Raad Group used to be involved in sabotage operations in Abulkhasib region south of Iraq. Masood said that alike many other former military structures of the MKO in Iraq, Raad Group lost its identity as he and a large number of other members of the group left Iraq. The International Red Cross has in an official report said recently that former MKO members had on several occasions voluntarily returned to Iran over recent months -- 328 of whom were accompanied with their families -- and received amnesty. Masood said that he had managed to flee Iraq one year ago, finally succeeding in receiving conditional residential permit after a long uncertainty in different countries. From the standpoint of European Union, with Sweden being one of its members, the MKO is a dreadful terrorist organization. The US however, in a double-standard approach and despite recognizing MKO as a terrorist group, has very close links with it. Masood further told reporters that there is yet one more possibility, that is the 250 missing MKO members might have been transferred to the US army camps in Iraq for possible use in terrorist operations inside Iran and other parts of the world. Iranian security institutions have provided proofs and documents which show that perpetrators of recent bombings in southwestern city of Ahvaz in Khuzestan province, which left six martyred, had infiltrated into the city from beyond borders and from inside Iraq. The press in the Persian Gulf littoral states disclosed on Monday that the US and Britain have sent up camps south of Iraq to offer terrorist training courses.
