At least 50 people have been killed in clashes between Iraqi security forces and members of the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) in the eastern province of Diyala.

 

Iraqi officials and the terrorist MKO members gave conflicting reports about the clashes and explosions that took place at Camp New Iraq on Sunday.

 

The MKO said the security forces raided the camp early on Sunday, killing more than 50 of its members.

 

The group said Iraqi forces set fire to property inside the camp.

 

The Iraqi government has denied any involvement.

 

Officials said MKO members attacked an army brigade responsible for the camp after the incident, killing four Iraqi soldiers and injuring four others.

 

Ali al-Moussawi, a spokesman for Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, confirmed that some MKO members had been killed, but said the deaths were the result of infighting among the camp residents.
