Rise in Iran-made bombs in Baghdad district

"BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Attacks using Iranian-made roadside bombs in a key part of Baghdad rose in January to the highest level in a year, the U.S. military said on Sunday.
Washington has accused Tehran of supplying Shi'ite militias in Iraq with sophisticated weapons, including armor-piercing roadside bombs known as explosively formed penetrators (EFPs), to attack U.S. troops. Tehran denies the allegation.
The military said there were 12 EFP attacks against U.S. forces last month in an area encompassing northern and eastern parts of Baghdad, including the slum of Sadr City, stronghold of the Mehdi Army militia of Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr."
