Iran Shipping Bombs to Iraqi Rebels
Citing U.S. military and intelligence officials, the network said U.S. soldiers intercepted a large shipment of high explosives last week, smuggled into northeastern Iraq from Iran.
“The officials say the shipment contained dozens of ‘shaped charges’ manufactured recently. Shaped charges are especially lethal because they’re designed to concentrate and direct a more powerful blast into a small area,” NBC reported.
“They’ll go right through a very heavily armored vehicle like an M1-A1 tank from one side right out the other side,” retired Gen. Barry McCaffrey told the network.
