The remaining members of the anti-Iran Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization terror group left Iraq on Friday for resettlement in Albania. More than 280 members of MKO living at Camp Liberty, next to Baghdad International Airport, were flown out of Iraq, the terrorist group said in a statement, Reuters reported.

“This final round of departures marks the successful conclusion of the process of relocating members of Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization outside Iraq,” it said.

The UN refugee agency confirmed that all the remnants of the group had left the Arab country.

“The international community has now successfully achieved the relocation of all Camp Hurriya [Liberty] residents from Iraq to third countries,” William Spindler, spokesman for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, said on Friday.

Back on August 25, another 155 members of the group, including a number of its senior leaders, had left Iraq for Albania. Iraqi leaders had long urged MKO remnants to leave the Arab country, but a complete eviction of the terrorists had been hampered by the US and European support for the group.
