Top anti-Khomeini leader is killed in a shoot-out

The top guerrilla leader fighting Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini's regime was killed Monday in a shoot-out with Revolutionary Guards in Tehran, Tehran Radio reported.

The radio said Mussa Kheyyabani, operational commander of the radical Mujahideen-e Khalq movement, died almost three years to the day after taking part in the battle of Tehran on Feb. 11, 1979, which overthrew the regime of the late Shah and brought Ayatollah Khomeini to power.
