ImageBAGHDAD (AFP) — The US military said on Friday it had arrested 39 Iranian-sponsored "criminals" in Iraq this month and had seized some 500,000 dollars meant to fund militancy in the war-wracked country.

"This month alone, coalition forces apprehended 39 Iranian-sponsored criminals and seized nearly 500,000 US dollars in funding, supporting terrorism in Iraq," the military said in a statement.

"Iraqi and coalition forces are working together to prevent Iranian lethal aid from endangering Iraqi people."

It said one of those arrested was a key member of the Iranian-sponsored Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq criminal network, who was captured on Friday in Baghdad.

The detainee is an alleged financier responsible for funding militant operations against Iraqi and US forces, the statement added.

The military regularly accuses Iranian-linked groups of arming, funding and training Iraqi militants to fight US forces in the country.

Tehran denies the charges.
