Iran ‘paid Iraq insurgents to kill UK soldiers’

The allegations are contained in a confidential “field report” written by a British officer who served in Basra during one of the most dangerous periods of the conflict. The report, which has never been made public, shows the full level of Iran’s involvement in the insurgency for the first time.

Patrick Mercer, the Tory MP and a former infantry commander said: “This report makes it quite clear that Iran is directly involved in funding the insurgency.”

He added: “The Government must confront Tehran over the deaths of British troops — anything else is appeasement”.
