Iran crosses into Iraq to hit bombing suspects

Iranian forces crossed into neighboring Iraq and killed 30 fighters from a group Tehran says was involved in last week's bombing of a military parade, the state TV reported.
Gen. Abdolrasoul Mahmoudabadi of the elite Revolutionary Guards told the TV on Sunday that the "terrorists" were killed in a clash Saturday "beyond the border" and that his forces were still in pursuit of two men who escaped the ambush.
While Iran has said in the past it would target armed groups on Iraqi soil, this is a rare case of it actually admitting to an attack.
