Founded in the 1960s, the MKO has masterminded a slew of terrorist operations in Iran and Iraq, killing thousands of people and wounding many more.
The group is especially notorious for taking sides with former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during the 1980-1988 war Iraqi-imposed on Iran.
The Iraq-based MKO is listed as a terrorist group by much of the international community.
