German officials said between 700 and 800 Iranians took part in the protest
A German court on Thursday lifted a police ban imposed on a demonstration by an Iranian opposition group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran. The court ruled the march in Berlin could go ahead if a speaker was prevented from addressing the protest and inflammatory banners were barred. Officials said between 700 and 800 Iranians took part in the protest. Earlier, the city's interior ministry said the group - which seeks the ouster of the Teheran government - planned to use the rally to build support for the Iranian People's Mujahedin-e Khalq which has been declared a terrorist organisation by the European Union. Germany's domestic security agency, the Verfassungsschutz, says the People's Mujahedin-e is merely a wing of the National Council of Resistance (NCR). The NCR had claimed in a statement that 40,000 people had planned to attend the Berlin rally. Also IRNA quoted an AFP photographer saying that around 400 to 500 people had gathered peacefully on a square in western Berlin away from the Brandenburg Gate and were being carefully monitored by police. ¬The MKO is on the official terrorist list of the German government, apart from the terrorist lists of the United States and the European Union.
