Border Guard forces arrest Syrian infiltrator in Anbar.

ANBAR / Aswat al-Iraq: Iraqi Border Guard forces arrested a Syrian infiltrator in the district of al-Qaem, western al-Anbar province, a military source said on Sunday.

"Accurate surveillance of all the outlets and security checkpoints under the Border Guard forces resulted in the capture of an infiltrator without resistance," the source told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

"Investigations with the infiltrator showed that he had no official documents nor weapons," he said, adding he will be investigated to find out why he entered Iraqi territories illegally.

The source did not give further details.

The predominantly Sunni province of al-Anbar lies 110 km west of the Iraqi capital Baghdad.
