US troops on Sunday detained two suspected weapons smugglers who may linked to Iran's elite Quds force, the military said. The two were captured and a number of weapons confiscated during a raid on a rural farm compound in eastern Iraq, near the Iranian border, according to a military statement. "The suspects may be associated with a network of terrorists that have been smuggling explosively formed projectiles (EFPs), other weapons, personnel and money from Iran into Iraq," the military said. EFPs are powerful, armor-piercing roadside bombs that have killed hundreds of US soldiers in recent months.
