Iranian opposition meets in Iraq

BAGHDAD, May 17 (AFP) -Thousands of Iranian opposition figures wound up a two-day meeting in Iraq on Monday, setting a target of May 2001 for the overthrow of the Tehran government, the opposition People's Mujahedeen said.

Iran's main armed opposition group said the meeting was held at one of its bases but did not disclose the location. The debate focused on the armed campaign against Tehran. The Mujahedeen has bases near the Iranian border and uses Iraqi territory to mount cross-border raids.

Its leader Massud Rajavi said at the meeting that the government of the Islamic republic would be overthrown "before the presidential elections of May 2001," revising earlier predictions which have failed to materialize.
