12 July 2007: Iraqi security forces have seized 200 explosive belts in a truck that crossed into Iraq from Syria on Wednesday, Interior Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Abdul-Karim Khalaf said. The incident occurred at the Waleed border crossing point, Khalaf said.

“When the truck was searched, 200 explosives belts were found in it,” the general said. He added that the driver was detained and is being questioned. Khalaf did not give the driver’s nationality.

The Iraqi government and US authorities have accused Syria of allowing foreign fighters to cross into Iraq, a claim that Syria denies saying it is impossible to control the long desert border.
