Syrian officials are “stunned“ over the fact that 200 suicide vests were on its way from Syria into Iraq. Iraqi security guards found the vests on a truck making its way across the Syrian/Iraq border.
“Iraqi security forces have seized 200 explosive belts in a truck that crossed into Iraq from Syria on Wednesday, Interior Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Abdul-Karim Khalaf said.
The incident occurred at the Waleed border crossing point, Khalaf said. The Iraqi government and US authorities have accused Syria of allowing foreign fighters to cross into Iraq, a claim that Syria denies saying it is impossible to control the long desert border. (AP)
