       People's Mujahedeen, the mained armed Iranian opposition group, said
       Friday that its security officers thwarted an Iranian government attack
       on its Baghdad, Iraq, headquarters.
       "At 11 a.m. today, terrorists sent from Iran by the mullahs' regime
       attempted to fire ... rockets on our headquarters from a nearby hotel,
       but our security officers foiled the attempt," the Mujahedeen spokesman
       said in a statement.
       Mujahedeen chief Massoud Rajavi called for the Iraqi government "to
       arrest and prosecute" the attackers, the spokesman said, adding that
       they had left behind large quantities of weapons and ammunition.
       The attack was the 52nd operation since 1993 against the Mujahedeen in
       Iraq by agents of "the religious dictatorship ruling Iran," the group
       In October, Iranian aircraft bombed two Mujahedeen bases in Iraqi
       provinces bordering Iran, raids that Tehran said were defensive.
