Iran has executed hundreds of political prisoners in the last few weeks and intends to kill 2,000 more, the leader of the major Iranian opposition group said in Paris. Massoud Rajavi, head of the Moujahedeen organization, said he appealed in a telegram to U.N. Secretary General Javier Perez de Cuellar to use all possible means "to prevent the continuation of this bloodbath." Rajavi said that 141 supporters of his Islamic socialist group were executed recently in Tehran and three other cities.
