British military involved in acts of terrorism in Iraq

Text of report by Iranian news agency IRNA

Baghdad, 14 October: An Iraqi army officer has said that the British military personnel and security forces were involved in acts of terrorism in Iraq.

The Iraqi officer, introduced himself to the Islamic Republic News Agency [IRNA] as Fayyadh Mas’ud, and said: The evidences at our disposal cannot be denied.

He added: Investigations show that the British Army’s explosives and equipment were used in several instances of bomb blasts in Baghdad.

Mas’ud said: In this connection, the Iraqi authorities have asked for explanations from the British officials, but so far they have not given any clear answer.

Terrorist operations in various districts of Baghdad and other regions have turned Iraq into an unsafe place and thousands of civilians have been killed so far. However, America and Britain repeatedly say that their forces will remain in Iraq until full establishment of security.

Political analysts believe that America and Britain are undermining security in Iraq in order to justify their own presence.

The Iraqi officer did not provide any further explanation on the British involvement in the terrorist activities in Iraq.

At the same time, some news sources unofficially reported that several British nationals and Iraqis, hired as mercenaries by the British, have been arrested in connection with the recent explosions in Baghdad.
