By American Forces Press Service

BAGHDAD — Iraqi Special Forces Soldiers and Police nabbed terror-cell leaders and members in raids in Baghdad over the last two days, U.S. officials reported.

Coalition forces have also killed 11 insurgents in three related incidents in Ramadi. In an incident near Haswah Tuesday, three insurgents were observed emplacing an improvised explosive device. Soldiers fired on the insurgents, killing two.

In a raid Monday in the same area, special Iraqi Police Forces with Coalition advisers captured six insurgents believed to be responsible for car-bomb attacks against Iraqi civilians and Security Forces. The insurgents are also allegedly responsible for criminal activities including extortion, murder, kidnapping and car theft in the Haswah and Baghdad areas. The insurgents also help finance other insurgent cells.

Monday evening, Coalition Forces engaged a small number of insurgents emplacing an improvised explosive device. Two insurgents died in the engagement.  | Full Story |
