Iran: US, Britain, Pakistan linked to militants

TEHRAN, Iran – The chief of Iran‘s powerful Revolutionary Guard accused the United States, Britain and Pakistan on Monday of having links with Sunni militants responsible for a suicide bombing that killed five senior Guard commanders and 37 others.

Iran’s president said those behind Sunday’s bombing are hiding across the border in Pakistan, and in a phone call with his Pakistani counterpart on Monday he demanded their arrest.

The accusations put some strain on the normally close relationship between Iran and Pakistan, which have had differences over the issue of Islamic extremism in the past. Monday’s statements marked the first time Iran has publicly accused its neighbor’s intelligence service of supporting the Sunni rebel group known as Jundallah, or Soldiers of God.
