The Habilian Association, an Iran-based human rights group, said that the anti-Iran terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) has abandoned its offices in Egypt after Egyptians toppled the country's autocratic ruler, Hosni Mubarak.

The Habilian Association, an Iran-based human rights group, said that the anti-Iran terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) has abandoned its offices in Egypt after Egyptians toppled the country's autocratic ruler, Hosni Mubarak.

According to a report published by the Habilian website, after Israel closed its embassy in Cairo, the MKO also abandoned a house and a dormitory in the Egyptian capital and transferred its terrorists to the MKO headquarters in Jordan.

The association quoted an Egyptian intelligence official who has defected to the people's side in the recent uprising as saying that MKO members have left their semi-covert offices in Cairo in such a rush that they have even left their equipment and personal properties.

Following 18 days of revolution in which more than 300 people were killed, former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak handed over the power to the Supreme Council of the Egyptian Armed Forces, which is headed by Defense Minister General Mohammed Tantawi.

Reports suggest Mubarak, 82, is staying in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el Sheikh, but there is widespread speculation he has fled to the United Arab Emirates.

The Muslim Brotherhood announced on its website on Saturday that Israel has closed its embassy in Cairo as a friendly regime in Egypt bit the dust on Friday.

"Israel closes embassy in Cairo following news of Mubarak's stepping down," a news post on the Brotherhood's official website said.

The Brotherhood, which has been oppressed by the Egyptian regime for decades, has long articulated popular Egyptian opposition against the Jewish state and Hosni Mubarak's good relations with Tel Aviv.
