LONDON – British authorities are telling Iran to better secure its border against weapons reportedly being smuggled into Iraq.

They’ve lodged a complaint to the Iranian government, after a stash of bomb-making supplies was found in southern Iraq. A senior official says it included timers, detonators and other devices.

He says it’s believed the materials are linked to the militant group Hezbollah and Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards.

The official says Britain has told Tehran that it is completely unacceptable to allow arms to cross over the border.

Yesterday, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld criticized Iran for allowing weapons to cross the border. He called it “notably unhelpful.”
