Iran calls for ICRC help in locating whereabouts of 250 MKO members

Tehran, Nov 5, IRNA-Iran on Saturday called on International Committee of the Red Cross to clarify whereabouts of 250 members of terrorist Mujahedeen Khalq Organization (MKO) who have disappeared in Iraq for the past one month.

Families of the MKO members appealed for help from the ICRC to find out what has happened to their relatives who had been in Iraq until one month ago.

"We heard alarming news from Iraq about fate of our relatives.

Ringleaders of MKO have deserted Iraq and we have bad news about loody liquidation within the organization or about our relatives being handed over to US and UK troops in Iraq to use them for terrorist operations in the country," said a letter to ICRC.

A former military commander of the terrorist organization Masood Ghaderi said in Stockholm on Tuesday that 250 MKO members have disappeared from Iraq. ICRC confirmed the report in an initial reaction.

Families of MKO members said in their letter to ICRC that the nternational organization is expected to help them clarify whereabouts of their relatives as per Geneva Convention.

ICRC said in a report that 328 MKO members have returned home in the past several months and enjoyed clemency.

Iran has declared amnesty for the repentant MKO members returning home.

Some 13 MKO members returned home last week and joined their families.
