Iran has strongly rejected U.S. accusations that it has provided weapons to insurgents in Iraq. According to an Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman, the U.S. allegations are baseless.
The statement comes a day after U.S. military officials released a report claiming Iran was arming Iraqi militants with sophisticated roadside bombs.According to US military officials, the bombs, capable of piercing armored tanks, have killed more than 170 allied troops.
