European Union governments decided Thursday to keep an Iranian opposition group on its terror blacklist, European diplomats said. The 27-nation bloc was asked to review whether the Paris-based People's Mujahadeen Organization of Iran should be taken off the list after an EU court ruling. The diplomats, speaking on condition of anonymity because the decision had not been formally announced, said EU governments rejected the group's arguments that it should be removed from the list. The group, which advocates the overthrow of the Iranian regime, is also on the US State Department's list of terrorist organizations. Former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein allowed the group to operate camps in Iraq from which it launched attacks inside Iran, although the group now says it has renounced military action and its militants in Iraq have handed weapons over to US-led forces there.
