WASHINGTON – US intelligence believes that a cache of manufactured bombs seized in Iraq about two weeks ago was smuggled into the country from Iran by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, an intelligence official said Tuesday.

“We believe they came from Iran’s Revolutionary Guards,” the official told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The find is significant not only because of the Iranian connection but also because it indicates manufactured bombs are now being introduced in a conflict that has seen the use of mainly improvised explosive devices.

“I think we believe there is more of them out there, that this is just the first cache we’ve actually obtained,” the official said.

He said intelligence analysts had “fairly high confidence” that the bombs came from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.
