US officials Call for Urgent Action to Protect Residents of Camp Ashraf: Urge Removal of MEK, from FTO List

PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — In a Symposium on Tuesday, April 26, 2011, former top U.S. government officials called for urgent U.S. government and United Nations action to protect 3,400 Iranian dissidents in Camp Ashraf, Iraq and urged the removal of Iran‘s main opposition movement, the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), from the U.S. list of terrorist organizations.

The speakers were in consensus in condemning the deadly April 8, 2011 attack on Ashraf by the Iraqi forces, which left 35 residents dead, including 8 women, and more than 300 wounded, as a crime against humanity whose perpetrators had to be brought to justice.
