ImageLondon, Nov. 25 – Iraqi forces have captured a suspected Shiite militia leader working for Iran, the United States military announced on Tuesday.

The man, who was arrested on Friday in the city of Qurna, central Iraq, is believed to be working for Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), the Multi-National Corps – Iraq (MNC-I) said in a statement. The report described him as a "Special Groups" leader.

"The suspected SG leader has allegedly worked with Iranian intelligence for three years and helped smuggle weapons, money and information into Iraq to facilitate SG activities", it said.

Iraqi Security Forces backed by U.S. troops arrested six other "suspected criminals" during operations in central Iraq Nov. 20-21, the statement said.

"Special Groups" is a term used by the U.S. military to describe radical Iranian-backed Shiite militia members.
