Albania earthquake said to hit Mojahedin camp.

A Balkans news website says the Mojahedin-e Khalq camp in Albania was seriously damaged in the 6.4 magnitude earthquake that hit Albania November 26.

A reporter for the Balkans Post, an English-language website, said he visited the camp and saw much damage before he was kicked out.

He said he asked some people at the camp how many deaths they suffered, but no one gave him a concrete number, although they spoke of many deaths and injuries.

He said Camp Ashraf is located only five kilometers from the epicenter of the earthquake near the Adriatic coast of Albania.

The government has said that 54 people died in the quake and 900 were injured, but it said nothing about any deaths specifically Camp Ashraf.

The reporter quoted one of the Mojahedin members at the site, identified only as Teymur as commenting that the quake struck "just five days after the suppression of our revolution inside Iran," referring to the November 15-19 protests, and them commenting: "This is pure revenge. I'm sure there are Iranian fingerprints on the earthquake."
