(Newser) – The US military has accused Iran’s Revolutionary Guard of aiding Iraqi militants in a devastating January attack and of using Hezbollah as a go-between to arm violent Shiites in that country. In March coalition forces arrested a Hezbollah operative suspected of liaising between Iran and a group led by a former Moqtada al-Sadr deputy, the AP reports.

The suspect , Ali Mussa Dakdouk, was carrying details on the Karbala government building where disguised militants killed five US soldiers, as well as instructions for terrorist techniques and a personal diary reporting meetings with militants. In announcements  yesterday, the military also disclosed three training camps near Tehran, where they said small groups of Iraqi militants were being prepared to fight. (Read more militant stories.)
