An Iranian officer accused of smuggling powerful roadside bombs into Iraq was arrested Thursday in northern Iraq, the US military said. The arrest could add to tensions between Washington and Teheran already strained by the detention of each other's citizens as well as US accusations of Iranian involvement in Iraq's violence and Iran's disputed nuclear program. The military said the suspect was a member of the Quds force - an elite unit of Iran's Revolutionary Guards - and was seized from a hotel in the Kurdish city of Sulaimaniyah. Two other Iranians were detained in the raid but later released, a Kurdish official said.
