They killed more than 30 people and wounded many others. Among the fatalities were many women.In a similar aggression, back in July 2009, the forces of Nuri al-Maliki attacked the camp killing a dozen and injuring 500.

The tide of change engulfing the Muslim world is getting bigger and more pervasive day by day. What has happened in less than six weeks in this region has already made it a historical year as a huge geography used to political and social stagnation has been witness to its biggest changes since the end of imperial area.

Senior British and American lawmakers and officials on Monday criticised the Obama administration for turning a blind eye to attacks by Iraq on members of the Iranian opposition PMOI (MEK) living in Camp Ashraf, Iraq, and urged the State Department to remove the group from its list of foreign terrorist organisations. The announcement was made at a conference in the House of Commons where speakers represented a majority of MPs and over 250 members of the House of Lords.
The British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom strongly condemns the use of violence by Iran to suppress anti-government protests in Iran earlier this week. It calls for a united international response to the killings of at least two anti-government protestors and the arrest of numerous demonstrators.
Committee chairman Lord Corbett said: "The international community needs to speak with one voice in condemning the appalling violence and arbitrary arrests by Iran to silence those who took to the streets in their tens of thousands on Monday calling for an end to religious dictatorship".
