Irak — Iraqis Kill Terror Financier, Arrest Suspects

WASHINGTON, July 2, 2010 — Iraqi secu­ri­ty forces killed an al-Qai­da in Iraq financier and arrest­ed three ter­ror­ism sus­pects in recent oper­a­tions with U.S. advi­sors, mil­i­tary offi­cials report­ed.

Iraqi forces and U.S. advi­sors con­duct­ed a vehi­cle stop in east­ern Mosul yes­ter­day to appre­hend the financier, who is believed to be respon­si­ble for the move­ment of for­eign fight­ers into Iraq and alleged­ly has assist­ed in vehi­cle-borne bomb attacks.

The want­ed man exhib­it­ed hos­tile intent toward Iraqi forces that then ini­ti­at­ed esca­la­tion-of-force pro­ce­dures and killed him and a crim­i­nal asso­ciate. Infor­ma­tion and evi­dence gath­ered at the scene led Iraqi forces to iden­ti­fy and arrest an addi­tion­al sus­pect­ed crim­i­nal asso­ciate of the financier.

Today in Jalu­la, north­east of Bagh­dad, Iraqi forces and U.S. advi­sors searched sev­er­al build­ings for a sus­pect­ed al-Qai­da in Iraq mem­ber alleged­ly respon­si­ble for con­duct­ing attacks on Iraqi and U.S. forces. Infor­ma­tion and evi­dence gath­ered at the scene led Iraqi forces to iden­ti­fy and arrest two sus­pect­ed crim­i­nal asso­ciates of the want­ed man.
