AP: French appeals court freed two of jailed members of an Iranian exile group of Mojahedin-e Khalq but put off until Wednesday a decision on their leader, arrested on terrorism-related charges. Maryam Rajavi was rounded up with more than 150 other members of the Mujahedeen Khalq in a June 17 sweep of their European headquarters, a walled compound north of Paris where police found $9 million in cash. Rajavi and 16 others are under investigation for criminal association with a terrorist enterprise and financing terrorism. Eleven were jailed, a decision the organization has appealed. On Tuesday the court ordered two released, rejecting prosecutors who argued against freeing any of the 11 on grounds the move would trouble public order, judicial officials said. The two, Nasrin Massoumi and Zahra Alavi Taleghani, remain under investigation. France's counter-intelligence agency, the DST, claims the Mujahedeen Khalq was planning attacks on Iranian diplomatic missions in Europe. It also claims the group was planning to transfer its headquarters from Iraq to Paris.
