Iran honors weapons ban
Iran is apparently honoring an informal pledge to stop smuggling explosives and other weapons into Iraq.
This has contributed to more than a 50 percent decrease in bombings since March, according to a U.S. senior general.
Bomb attacks have decreased from 3,239 in March to 1,560 in October. This is the lowest it has been since September of 2005.
Since the creation of the Baghdad security plan there has been an overall decrease in violence in Iraq.
The U.S. is hoping to recreate this drop in violence in Anbar Province, where the U.S. has signed more than $5.2 million in contracts in attempt to protect roads and other infrastructure in the area.
