14. CNN's Michael Ware reports about the weapons
U.S. military offers what it says is evidence of Iranian involvement in Iraq
BAGHDAD (CNN) -- The U.S. military Sunday presented evidence that it says shows an elite Iranian force under the command of Iran's supreme leader is behind bombings that have killed at least 170 U.S. forces in Iraq.

General contentions of Iranian involvement in Iraq have been made in the past year by U.S. officials, but there haven't been many details issued.

CNN's Michael Ware attended Sunday's briefing by a senior defense official, a senior defense analyst and an explosives expert, all of whom asked to remain unnamed.

The officials focused on EFPs, explosively formed penetrators, as evidence that Iran is involved in arming Iraqi insurgents. EFPs can punch through heavily armored vehicles.

The U.S. military officials said EFPs are manufactured in such a specific way that they can be traced to Iran. Also, the U.S. military says 81-mm mortar shells used in deadly attacks in Iraq can also be directly traced to Iran.
