German police bans MKO rally in Berlin over fears of violence

Berlin, Feb 10, IRNA -- German police has banned Thursday's rally by the MKO terrorist group in Berlin, fearing possible violent acts by the Iraqi-based group, a police spokeswoman told IRNA.

"The demonstration was cancelled by police because they had doubts about the peaceful slogans of the rally which was supposed to be about Iran's human rights situation and its nuclear program," she said.

The MKO gathering was supposed to begin at noon in downtown Berlin.

She pointed out that MKO supporters have been told via police loudspeakers that the rally has been banned and that they have to leave the demonstration site.

Refusal to heed police orders could lead to subsequent arrests, the spokeswoman added.

The MKO is on the official terrorist list of the German government.
