The US military said Tuesday that American soldiers are still finding large numbers of Iranian-made weapons in Iraq, despite Iran's denials. Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell says a large cache of Iranian explosives was found a week ago, and the top US general in Iraq recently told reporters about another large find. Morrell said the military also sees evidence of Iranian training among Iraqi terror groups. Morrell also cited Syria, saying that foreign fighters still are coming into Iraq across the Syrian border.
