BAGHDAD, Dec 31 (KUNA) -- Members of the paramilitary Awakening Council of Al-A'zhamiya arrested three persons of Iranian nationality and handed them to the US forces, commander of the council Colonel Riyadh Al-Samerra'e said Monday.
The suspects were carrying rigged Iraqi identity cards, Al-Samerra'e told KUNA, noting that the Multi-National Forces in Iraq, Baghdad Command, will investigate the case.
The detainees have links with Lebanese Hezbollah group and were trained militarily in Iran, he added.
Meanwhile, militants belonging to Al-Qeada Organization in Iraq killed eight persons and injured dozens of others in separate attacks across Iraq Monday.
The gunmen attacked three police stations in Al-Khales town, Diala governorate, north Baghdad.
Two persons including an awakening council militiaman and a policeman were killed and three others including a captain were injured in the attacks, a security source told KUNA.
Three other persons were killed and ten others were injured in a separate attack in Deli Abbas town, north Baaqoba governorate.
Suspected Al-Qaeda militants killed three persons in an attack against Tal Al-Zahab town, Salah-Eddin governorate, north Baghdad, the source added.
The attacks came 24 hours after Al-Qeada leader Osama Bin-Laden warned the Iraqi Sunnis against joining the pro-government awakening councils. (end) ahh.gb.
