Iraq — Iraqis Arrest 4 Suspects in Combined Operations

WASHINGTON, July 14, 2010 — Iraqi secu­ri­ty forces arrest­ed four sus­pect­ed crim­i­nal asso­ciates of al-Qai­da in Iraq mem­bers dur­ing com­bined oper­a­tions with U.S. advi­sors in the last two days.

In Bagh­dad today, Iraqi forces and U.S. advi­sors searched a build­ing for a sus­pect­ed leader of the ter­ror­ist group believed to be respon­si­ble for attacks on coali­tion forces and for financ­ing the group’s oper­a­tions through rob­bery, kid­nap­ping, extor­tion and exploit­ing con­tracts with Iraq’s gov­ern­ment.

Infor­ma­tion and evi­dence gath­ered at the scene led Iraqi forces to iden­ti­fy and arrest a sus­pect­ed crim­i­nal asso­ciate of the want­ed man.

In Taji yes­ter­day, Iraqi forces search­ing with U.S. advi­sors for a sus­pect­ed al-Qai­da in Iraq leader believed to respon­si­ble for recruit­ing teenagers and chil­dren to car­ry out sui­cide attacks against coali­tion forces arrest­ed three sus­pect­ed al-Qai­da in Iraq crim­i­nal asso­ciates of the want­ed man.
