Leader of the Mujahedin Khalq terrorist Organization (MKO), Mas'oud Rajavi, has been reportedly arrested in Jordan.
According to an al Jawar website report, Rajavi and many other members of the MKO had left Iraq and fled to Jordan after the Iraqi government issued arrest warrants for the terrorist organization's leaders.
Earlier in June, Iraq's government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh blamed the cell for meddling in Iraq's internal affairs, adding that the government would activate judiciary petitions against the members of the terrorist group.
This is while US Vice president Dick Cheney stated earlier that Rajavi had taken shelter in one of the Middle Eastern countries.
The MKO has been blacklisted as a terrorist organization by many countries and international organizations.
The terrorist group targeted Iranian government officials and civilians in Iran and abroad in the early 1980s. The group also attempted an unsuccessful invasion of Iran in the last days of the Iraq-Iran war in 1988.
The MKO was also involved in the massacre of Iraqis under the former Baathist regime of Saddam Hussein.
