U.S. Soldiers launch raid on Iranian-backed Shiite militia cell

American soldiers raided a town north of Baghdad today and killed 25 Shiite militia fighters who were supposedly involved in weapons smuggling from Iran. The group was believed to be a splinter cell of the Jaish Al-Mahdi (Mahdi Army), led by Muqtada Al-Sadr. Evidence provided by U.S. and British intelligence shows that many of these breakaway fighters are being trained in camps outside of the Iranian capitol, Tehran.
