London, May 29 – A European Inter-Parliamentary group condemned on Monday an attack earlier in the day on a passenger bus in Iraq which left more than a dozen killed and at least 15 wounded.

On Monday, a bus transporting Iraqi workers from the town of al-Khalis, northeast of Baghdad, to Ashraf City, the main base of the Iranian opposition People Mojahedin (PMOI/MeK), was targeted by a roadside explosive device killing 13 people and wounding 15 others, according to a statement by the Friends of a Free Iran.

“This terrorist attack comes in the wake of several threats made by the Iranian regime on the Iraqi authorities regarding the presence of the PMOI in Iraq and has all the characteristics of the recurrent terrorist attacks masterminded by the Iranian regime in Iraq”, the statement said, highlighting that the attack was carried out just one day after Iran’s Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki visited Iraq.

The EU inter-parliamentary group expressed its condolences to the Iraqi authorities, the MeK, the people of al-Khalis, and the families of the victims of the attack.

It urged the European authorities to press the Iranian regime to “step down its policy of promoting terrorism in Iraq” and called on the Iraqi government to grant political asylum to members of the MeK in Ashraf City.
