Irak — Forces Continue Crackdown on Terrorists in Iraq

WASHINGTON, April 9, 2010 — Iraqi forces, with U.S. advi­sors, con­tin­ued their assault on al-Qai­da in Iraq this week, arrest­ing one ter­ror­ism sus­pect near Bagh­dad and two oth­ers in Mosul, mil­i­tary offi­cials report­ed.

Iraqi secu­ri­ty forces today arrest­ed a man sus­pect­ed in vehi­cle-borne bomb­ings in the Bagh­dad area after a com­bined patrol searched a build­ing just west of the cap­i­tal city for anoth­er man believed to be his asso­ciate in the bomb­ings. In the north­ern Iraqi city of Mosul on April 7, Iraqi forces arrest­ed two sus­pect­ed asso­ciates of an al-Qai­da in Iraq leader for east­ern Mosul dur­ing a com­bined oper­a­tion with U.S. forces.

The com­bined force searched mul­ti­ple build­ings with a court war­rant for the sus­pect­ed al-Qai­da in Iraq leader, who is believed to have played a key role in acquir­ing vehi­cles and weapons used to car­ry out assas­si­na­tions in Mosul.

After a pre­lim­i­nary inves­ti­ga­tion at the scene, Iraqi forces iden­ti­fied and arrest­ed two sus­pect­ed crim­i­nal asso­ciates of the want­ed man. (Com­piled from U.S. Forces Iraq news releas­es.)
