Iran says it has arrested two suspected al-Qaida members who crossed over from Iraq

Iran said Tuesday it had detained two suspected al-Qaida members who entered the country illegally from Iraq, state television reported.

"Two suspected al-Qaida operatives were arrested after entering Ilam province from Iraq," the television reported, adding that they were being interrogated.

Iran says it has made a significant contribution to the global campaign against terrorism by detaining agents of Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida network, but the United States accuses the Tehran government of harboring al-Qaida fugitives.

Iran says it has repatriated more than 500 suspected al-Qaida operatives, most of them Saudis. It has also said that some al-Qaida suspects would stand trial in Iranian courts for offenses committed in Iran, but no reports of such trials have emerged, reports AP.

U.S. counter-terrorism officials have said a handful of senior al-Qaida operatives who fled to Iran after the war in Afghanistan in 2001 may have developed a working relationship with a secretive military unit linked to Iran's religious hard-liners. Iran has rejected the charges.

The majority of experts in the field of armaments admit that made-in-Russia weapons can be referred to as best weapons in the world. To substantiate this point, suffice it to recall that many countries make their own ripoffs of world-famous Russian weapons.
