TEHRAN -- Members of terrorist Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) have attacked a Press TV reporter and other crew members in the Swedish capital to prepare a report on an exhibition held in Stockholm on the group’s crimes.
Bianca Rahimi came under attack on Thursday, which left her with torn clothes but not injuries.
Press TV said the government of Sweden must be held accountable for providing support to MKO terrorists and failing to ensure the security of the international network’s crew.
Recounting the attack, one of the event’s organizers said MKO terrorists violently attacked posters and banners of the exhibition, which depicted atrocities perpetrated by the terror cult against Iranian civilians.
The MKO terrorists slashed the banners with knives and splashed paint on them to hide their brutal crimes, and pelted organizers with stones and eggs.
Swedish police finally had to arrest nine of the attackers before releasing an unspecified number of them. One of the organizers of the exhibition said some of the terrorists came back and resumed assaults despite police warnings.
In response, police beefed up security around the event.
The exhibition is held near the court where Iranian citizen Hamid Nouri is on trial over allegations of human rights violations back in the 1980s.
Iranian authorities have strongly condemned the trial, saying evidence presented in the court was propaganda ruse and provided by the MKO.
MKO members harassed the family of Nouri in early May outside the Stockholm District Court, where his trial is taking place, an eyewitness told Press TV at that time.
There were “a bunch of people screaming and saying really, really shameful and bad words toward an old woman,” he said, adding that this is something “I have never seen in my whole life. It never existed in my world. So, I was just shocked by what I’m hearing,” the witness said.
He said he was passing by to go to work when he first saw the MKO members screaming and swearing at Nouri’s family in Persian.
The MKO has conducted numerous assassinations and bombings

against Iranian statesmen and civilians since the 1979 victory of Iran’s Islamic Revolution. Its members fled Iran in 1986 to Iraq, where they enjoyed backing from former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
The anti-Iran cult was on the U.S. government’s list of terrorist organizations until 2012. Major European countries, including France, have also removed it from their blacklists.
A few years ago, MKO elements were relocated from Camp Ashraf in Iraq’s Diyala Province to Camp Hurriyet (Camp Liberty), a former U.S. military base in Baghdad, and later sent to Albania.
MKO terrorists enjoy freedom of activity in the U.S. and Europe and even hold regular meetings, in which European and American officials make speeches.
