Those who have followed the multiple citings of stories about the MEK, Camp Ashraf and the Bulgarian troops assigned there during the bulk of the occupation will find this of keen interest.
Iraqi forces raided a camp housing members of an Iranian opposition group on Tuesday, sharply escalating tensions that have been on the rise since the U.S. military turned over responsibility for the camp to the Iraqis.
Four people were killed by the Iraqi police and scores more injured…
The raid came a day after the Iraqi government, which has maintained a security cordon around the camp’s perimeter, said it would assume complete control of the camp but promised to protect the people inside.
Shortly afterward, the group’s leaders announced they were willing to return to Iran if they were guaranteed immunity from prosecution. They insisted on guarantees in writing from Iran, the United States, the United Nations and Iraq.
A legal counsel at the camp, Behzad Saffari, said the Iraqis also opened fire in Tuesday’s melee. He claimed American troops witnessed the event but did not intervene except to take pictures. Source
