These people have come together to discuss the legality of the presence of the terrorist group of Mujahedin Khalgh Organization on their soil.

In this gathering organized by the Iraki Tribal Council, many Iraki officials, tribal leaders and ordinary people voiced their support for the tribes that are calling for expulsion of the organization from their country.

They also reminded the Iraki policy makers of what they called the crimes committed by OMK against the Iraki citizens under Saddam regime.

After the US invasion of Irak in 2003, American troops disarmed OMK members based at the training base of the terrorist group at Camp Ashraf -- about 60km north of Baghdad. There are many in Irak saying that despite the disbarment, the US and its allies delay evacuation of the camp.

The United States, Canada, Irak and Iran have all designated the OMK as a terrorist organization.

The group is especially notorious in Iran for siding with former Iraki dictator Saddam Hussein during the 1980-1988 Iran-Irak war.

Iraki security forces took control of the camp, housing 3,500 people, on July 28.
