Nine British soldiers have been charged with smuggling weapons out of Iraq to trade for drugs and cash, the Ministry of Defense said Thursday. The soldiers, all from the 3rd Battalion of The Yorkshire Regiment, will appear at a hearing at Catterick Garrison on Nov. 30 to determine whether there will be a court-martial. The ministry declined to say whether the soldiers were accused of smuggling British weapons or weapons seized from insurgents, or to give any other details of the charges pending the court hearing. Their unit, an armored infantry regiment, completed a tour of duty in Iraq last year.
