London, May 05 – The U.S. military announced on Friday that it had arrested 16 individuals suspected of smuggling roadside bombs to Iraq from neighbouring Iran.

The arrests were made by Coalition troops Friday morning during raids in the Baghdad slum Sadr City, a statement by the Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF-I) said.

“The individuals targeted during the raid are suspected members of a secret cell terrorist network known for facilitating the transport of weapons and explosively formed penetrators, or EFPs, from Iran to Iraq, as well as bringing militants from Iraq to Iran for terrorist training.

“Intelligence reports also indicate the secret cell has ties to a kidnapping network that conducts attacks within Iraq as well as interactions with rogue elements throughout Iraq and into Iran”, the statement said.

“This morning’s success is yet another example of the dedication and determination of Coalition forces to rid Iraq of the terrorist organisations that threaten the safety and security of this country and its people”, said Lt. Col. Christopher Garver, MNF-I spokesperson.
