London, 6 Jul - The Brussels-based European Iraqi Freedom Association has condemned the missile attack on Camp Liberty, on Monday.

The attacks wounded 50 people, including 14 women, and destroyed large sections of the camp. The camp houses members of the main Iranian opposition group People’s Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (PMOI or MEK). Given their location, in a security-heavy area near to Baghdad airport, it seems like the Iranian Government worked with the Iraqi security forces to execute these attacks, it has been suggested.
