Iran: US, Britain, Pakistan linked to militants

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - The chief of Iran's Revolutionary Guard is accusing the United States, Britain and Pakistan of having links with the Sunni militants responsible for a suicide bombing that killed five senior Guard commanders and 37 others.

Iran's president also says those behind the bombing are hiding in Pakistan and he demanded their arrest.

Revolutionary Guard chief Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari said Monday that the Sunni rebel group known as Jundallah, or Soldiers of God, is at work to disrupt security in Iran and he vowed a crushing response.

The official IRNA news agency quoted Jafari as saying that the group behind Sunday's attack has links with American, British and Pakistani intelligence and operates under their support and orders.
