Two Senior Iranian Revolutionary Guards Captured in Iraq

[AP/Washington Post] Slobodan Lekic - Two Iranians detained by U.S. forces in Iraq were senior members of Iran's Revolutionary Guards' elite Qods force and had coordinated attacks against coalition troops and Iraqi civilians, Maryam Rajavi, who heads the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NICR), said Thursday. The group has provided relatively accurate information on developments in Iran over the past several years. In Washington, a Pentagon official said Thursday that the two Iranians "are involved in the transfer of IED technologies from Iran to Iraq." IED stands for "improvised explosive devices" that are commonly used in attacks in Iraq.
