Canadian FM says Afghan insurgents are getting weapons from Iran


Canadian Press: Defence Minister Peter MacKay says weapons are flowing from Iran into the hands of Afghan insurgents. The Canadian Press

KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan – Defence Minister Peter MacKay says weapons are flowing from Iran into the hands of Afghan insurgents.

He says improvised explosive devices from Iran have been a particular concern for Canadians.

Most of Canada’s 73 combat deaths have been the result of IEDs.

He says it’s been difficult for Canada to address the issue though he has made his concerns known to the Iranian government.

He says it’s difficult to cut the lines of supply when you have people in other countries giving weapons to be used against Canadian and coalition forces.

MacKay made the comments Tuesday during a stop at Kandahar Airfield where he spent Christmas with the troops.
