  1. Iraqi opposition 'moves troops in'

    Residents of Meydan said they had seen a large number of trucks bringing Supreme Council of the Islamic Revolution in Iraq (Sciri) soldiers from Iran in recent days.

    They said the Sciri forces had come to the village, which is on the road from the Iranian border, but then moved on to other parts of the Kurdish-controlled enclave of northern Iraq.

    A Reuters news agency reporter in Meydan says he saw at least 200 of the Shia Muslim soldiers, who were wearing camouflage uniforms and carrying Kalashnikov assault rifles.

    However, Sciri has denied a report that it has sent about 5,000 of its troops into the enclave to prepare for a possible US-led war.

    ...Hands up all those who didn't see this coming? Time for the planners to look at the satintel photos of roads to Iraq from iran methinks..

    ......especially near Basra
