PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Picture date: Tuesday August 4, 2009. Campaigners and hunger strikers are protesting outside the American Embassy on behalf of exiled dissident Iranians who are living in a camp in a refugee camp in Iraq. Human rights groups, including Amnesty International, have warned of a violation of the rights of Ashraf residents and an impending humanitarian catastrophe. The Iraqi government, which moved to take control of the People’s Mojahedeen Organization of Iran (PMOI) main camp on Tuesday, has vowed to close Camp Ashraf and return members of the Iranian opposition organisation to Iran or a third country.
