Italy Intercepts Arms Deal for Iraqi Black Market

Mob News relates a CBS report on a $40 million Iraqi arms deal intercepted by Italian police.

The sale of “more than 100,000 Russian-made automatic weapons to the Iraqi government” was uncovered by an Italian anti-Mafia probe. Says Mob News, “The Iraqi participants in the deal claimed in e-mails with Italian brokers that the purchase had the approval of the U.S. government. A U.S. spokesman in Baghdad denied that.”
