U.S.-led forces raided Iran's consulate in the northern Iraqi city of Irbil on Thursday and detained five staff members. Also seized during the pre-dawn operation were computers and documents. The raid coincided with President Bush's pledge to interrupt the flow of support from Iran and Syria to insurgents in Iraq.
