Three members of the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) have reportedly fled from their new residence, Camp Liberty, near the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.

According to a report published by the Habilian Association on Wednesday, the MKO members could escape from the former US military base near the Baghdad International Airport in spite of the strict measures and tight controls on the movements of all MKO terrorists within the site.

The report added that the MKO members have surrendered themselves to Iraqi security forces.

The Habilian Association is an Iranian human rights NGO comprising a group of families that have lost their beloved ones in terrorist acts during the early years following Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The report by the association comes as nearly 1,000 MKO members have expressed willingness to return to Iran and seek clemency.

Meanwhile, the Iraqi government has recently transferred the fifth group of the MKO terrorists from Camp New Iraq, formerly known as Camp Ashraf, situated about 120 kilometers (74 miles) west of the border with Iran, to the Camp Liberty.

Governor of the Iraqi city of Khalis, Oday al-Khedran, said that 416 MKO members, including 350 women, were moved from the Camp New Iraq to the new location.

The MKO fled to Iraq in 1986, where it enjoyed the support of Iraq's executed dictator Saddam Hussein, and set up its Camp Ashraf near the Iranian border.
