Iranian opposition activists long branded as terrorists by the European Union celebrated their legalization Tuesday with confetti, bullhorns and balloons - and appealed to be removed from the US list as well. More than 1,000 members and supporters of the People's Mujahedeen Organization of Iran rallied outside EU headquarters a day after the bloc removed the group from its list of outlawed terrorist organizations. The People's Mujahedeen had been on the EU's list of banned organizations since 2002, but the 27-nation bloc's foreign ministers removed it Monday in response to a string of European court decisions that went in the group's favor. The decision permits the group to access tens of millions of euros in assets that have been frozen for the past six years.
