Iraqi forces disarm explosives-laden donkeys
Animals were carrying dozens of anti-tank rounds near Iranian boarder
Iranian boarder? Prepare to repel him! Ahem.
Iraqi security forces patrolling near the Iranian border found six donkeys carrying dozens of high-explosive anti-tank mines, the U.S. military said in a statement Thursday.
The military said two men fled the scene in the religiously-mixed Diyala province where the insurgency is active.
53 Russian and Italian made anti-tank mines were seized. The donkeys were released.
