Iraq has moved most Iranian dissidents out of a camp they have lived in for decades to a former U.S. military base in Baghdad, ending a lengthy standoff with the group once sheltered by Saddam Hussein, officials said on Sunday.
Around 680 people were moved from Camp Ashraf on Saturday, the last large big group to leave the camp which had been home to the People's Mujahideen Organisation of Iran (PMOI), which fell out of favour after the Iraqi dictator's downfall.
"Of the 3,280 residents originally in Camp Ashraf, only a small group now remains on a temporary basis to arrange the details pursuant to the closure of the camp," said Martin Kobler, special representative of the U.N. Secretary General in Iraq.
There is now a small number of remaining dissidents left to deal with, some personal property and the need to formally hand over Camp Ashraf to the local authorities, said Uday al-Khadran, mayor of the nearby town of Khalis.>>>
