WASHINGTON, Aug. 18, 2010 — Iraqi secu­ri­ty forces killed a ter­ror­ism sus­pect and detained sev­en oth­ers in oper­a­tions over the last two days in Iraq, mil­i­tary offi­cials report­ed.

In Mansuriyah today, Iraqi forces work­ing with U.S. advi­sors were search­ing for a sus­pect­ed al-Qai­da in Iraq mem­ber who alleged­ly has worked close­ly with the organization’s lead­er­ship in Diyala province to sup­ply weapons and explo­sives to terrorists. 

As the com­bined force moved toward the tar­get­ed build­ing, a man with an assault rifle tried to engage them and was shot and killed. Dur­ing the exchange, a man suf­fered a gun­shot wound to his arm when he was struck by a ric­o­chet bul­let, and he received imme­di­ate med­ical attention.
