Baqubah Serves As Microcosm of Iraq Chaos
Herald Sun; May 5, 2003
BAQUBAH, Iraq- the Iranian opposition organization Mujahedeen Khalq, which operated in Iraq for years with Saddam's support, is also active in the area.
The Mujahedeen Khalq, whose members signed a cease-fire agreement with the United States last month, reportedly has bases and checkpoints on Baqubah's eastern outskirts.
"If they continue with this, they will face stiff resistance," said Abu Thar al-Khales, an official with the Iran-backed Supreme Council.
Also an issue for the Baqubah committee: Will it be permitted by U.S. officials, who hold a military position inside town and have insisted they will not tolerate people who simply claim to be in charge?
No decision yet. U.S. Central Command in Qatar won't discuss the political situation in Baqubah and did not respond to written questions about it.
