The BBC says:

Britain has accused Iran of responsibility for explosions which have caused the deaths of all eight UK soldiers killed in Iraq this year.

A senior British official, briefing correspondents in London, blamed Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

He said they had provided technology to a Shia group in southern Iraq, although the Iranians had denied this, he added.

An Iranian spokesman denied the charge, insisted that Tehran was committed to ensuring a peaceful Iraq.

How convenient. An anonymous official (wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more) starts to release anti-Iranian propaganda. No doubt part of the softening up campaign of the general public so that if and when the US decides to bomb Iran the UK government can claim that Iran deserved it all along. Don't forget to mention that Iran has (or soon will have) weapons of mass destruction.
