Iraq’s Sunnis ask the Egyptians and Arabs to help them “save the Iraqi people from the Iranian occupation of Iraq.”
An Iraqi Sunni delegation met with Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit in Cairo on May 7 in an effort to urge Arab countries to “save Iraq and its people” against the “Iranian occupation” of Iraq, Agence France-Presse reported, citing Sheikh Majid Abdel Razzak al-Ali Suleiman, the leader of the Iraqi Dulaim tribe.
Afghan police and security officers arrested two Iranian men, in two separate incidents, suspected of spying around Afghan and NATO military installations, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported May 7. One of the suspects was captured at the Iranian border attempting to enter Zarang. He reportedly was carrying photographs and documents indicating his involvement with militants. Another suspect was detained in the southeastern region of Afghanistan near the border of Pakistan. Afghan authorities believe he was preparing information pertaining to a possible attack on Afghan and NATO security forces.
