Notes: As part of ongoing efforts to improve understanding of illicit small arms, Small Arms Survey has acquired dozens of US government storyboards (succinct summaries) on arms caches seized in Iraq. The following is the second installment of a multi-post collection of documents on seizures of IEDs and components. The IEDs were found in and around Baghdad, Iraq, from January through March 2009.
Part one of this series is available here.
