US removes exiled Iranian group from terror list
Washington: The US government late on Friday removed an exiled Iranian group in Iraq from its list of foreign terrorist organisations, reports said.
According to the US State Department, the decision made by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton enabled the group, the Mujahideen Khalq (MEK), also known as the People`s Mujahedeen of Iran, to have its assets under US jurisdiction unfrozen and do business with American entities.
The decision came as the organisation has renounced violence over the years and cooperated in closing Camp Ashraf peacefully, an issue which had resulted in deadly clashes with the Iraqi security forces, it added.
The decision took effect Friday.
