BBC NEWS | Middle East | US 'protects' Iran rebels in Iraq

BBC NEWS | Middle East | US 'protects' Iran rebels in Iraq: "US 'protects' Iran rebels in Iraq
The US has granted 'protected status' under the Geneva Conventions to 3,800 members of an Iranian opposition group interned in Iraq.
This meant that People's Mujahideen's fighters were not considered belligerents during the Iraq war, State Department spokesman Adam Ereli said.
But the new status did not affect the US view that the group was a terrorist organisation, Mr Ereli said.
Iran said the decision undermined US claims to be fighting terrorist groups. "
