Iran is providing secret training camps for Iraqi Shias near Teheran, Britain's The Independent reported Sunday morning. According to the report, thousands of volunteers are being trained in "advanced guerrilla warfare" by instructors believed to hail from Iran's Revolutionary Guard. One "fighter," who spoke to the The Independent, said that hundreds of fellow Iraqi Shia militants were being taught to "attack Americans" in preparation for "bringing down the occupiers."
