Members of the anti-Iran terrorist cult MKO attacked the reporter and news crew of Press TV while they were covering an exhibition held in Stockholm, Sweden, highlighting the group’s crimes.

The exhibition turned chaotic after the cult members violently assaulted the Press TV crew and other participants.

Press TV crew, reporting on an exhibition showcasing MKO bombings and assassinations in Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, was viciously attacked by unruly supporters of the group.

Listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community, the notorious group has the blood of 17,000 Iranians on its hands.

After being driven out of post-revolution Iran, the MKO based itself in Camp Ashraf in Iraq, where members were forced to pledge allegiance to its leader Masoud Rajavi, and demonstrate that with cult-like behavior. For women that meant divorcing their husbands and marrying him.

Many families spent years on the fringes of the camp begging for their children to be released but to no avail. The camp was later dismantled in the wake of the US invasion of Iraq.

Until 2012 the MKO was on the US terrorist list. It was also blacklisted by the EU until 2009. Since being removed the new leader of the cult, Maryam Rajavi, has forged close relationships with western officials.

From what unfolded on the streets of Stockholm today it is shockingly clear that the EU has become a safe haven for the MKO, which attacks journalists with little fear of retribution.
