Swedish Anti-Tank Weapon Used By Iraqi Military

Swedish weapons are being used by the Iraqi military, according to Swedish Radio News. It is the anti-tank weapon AT 4, which has been passed on by the American military to the Iraqis.

This violates the export agreement that Sweden has with the US. According to this agreement, the Americans will have to keep control over their own equipment and not give it to any other country.

American soldiers have confirmed to Swedish Radio News that Iraqi military is using the Swedish anti-tank weapon. Swedish Radio has also come across articles and photos from the American armed forces showing US special forces training their Iraqi counterpart with the Swedish weapon.
