U.S. forces in Iraq said they have captured at least four Iranians suspected of involvement in attacks on Iraqi security forces.

The Iranians, reportedly including senior military officials, were captured during a pair of raids conducted last week, The New York Times reported Monday.

Two of the Iranians were reportedly in the country at the invitation of Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, and an Iraqi government official said officials from both countries have been working to secure the release of the prisoners.

The Iranian ambassador has been running around from office to office, he said.

U.S. officials would not specify the identities of the Iranian prisoners, nor did they offer details of the evidence against them. However, one official said a lot of material was seized during the raids.
