TEHRAN - Iran and Iraq have signed an extradition agreement that Iranian media speculated could lead to members of a militant group that used to enjoy refuge in Iran being sent home for trial.

The accord, signed by justice ministers of both countries in Tehran late on Sunday according to official news agencies, follows a raid by Iraqi forces on April 8 on Camp Ashraf, home of the People's Mujahideen Organization of Iran, which wants to overthrow the Iranian government.

According to the UN human rights chief, 34 people were killed in the raid on the camp, which was set up under former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein but which the new government has said must close.
