Iranian resistance group storms embassy in Oslo

A group of 25 Iranians stormed into the Iranian Embassy here and began smashing portraits of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the revolutionary leader, and burning documents, police said. The protesters, who had driven from neighboring Sweden, displayed a placard that said they represented a left-wing national resistance council led by Masoud Rajavi, the leader of the Mujahideen guerrilla organization who followed ousted President Abolhassan Bani-Sadr into exile.

Meanwhile, Ayatollah Khomeini dismissed escalating political violence -- including a wave of political assassinations and bombings -- as "nothing" and labeled exiled leaders plotting to overt hrow his Islamic regime "a bankrupt bunch."
