TEHRAN - German
police thwarted an attempt by members of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO also known as MEK, NCRI or PMOI) terrorist group to attack Iran’s pavilion at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
A small number of MKO members attempted to stir chaos at Iran’s national pavilion, but failed, thanks to the vigilance of the pavilion staff and immediate presence of the Book Fair officials and the Frankfurt Police.
The MKO members, who had gathered in front of the pavilion, were forced out of the Book Fair.
The MKO is listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community. Its members fled Iran in 1986 for Iraq, where they received support from then dictator Saddam Hussein.
The notorious outfit has carried out numerous attacks against Iranian civilians and government officials for several decades.
