French Police Swoop on Iran Opposition Group
"PARIS (Reuters) - French police launched a major swoop Tuesday on a left-wing Iranian exile group based in the Paris region, rounding up 167 sympathizers for questioning over possible links to terrorism and seizing $1.3 million in funds.
The Interior Ministry said around 1,300 police and national security officers descended on homes and office of the People's Mujahideen starting at 6 a.m. in a raid ordered by leading anti-terrorist investigating judge Jean-Louis Bruguiere.
Among those detained was Miryam Rajavi, wife of Mujahideen founder Massoud Rajavi and head of the exile umbrella group National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), police said. Nine people were released immediately, while the rest were detained....."

...So, they are arrested; but actually they're not that much popular between Iranians & perhaps are the most hateful opposition out of country. You know; the fact is that at the time most of Iranians are sick & tired of any thing that is related to Islam & all they want is a democratic & especially secular regime. Many ones believe that if mujahedeen could have the power the situation would be much worse!
