Eight Suspects Detained in Iraq; Forces Find 30 Weapons Caches

March 11, 2006 - Iraqi and coalition forces detained eight
suspects today in a joint operation in Baghdad. The men are suspected
of kidnapping, manufacturing car bombs, and financing and supporting
terrorists, officials said.

Four men were detained at the Al Khayr Mosque Complex, identified as a
possible al Qaeda safe haven, and the others were detained from sites
raided during the operation. Iraqi forces led the joint operation and
discovered several rooftop fighting positions, AK-47s and Molotov
cocktails.

In other news, over an 11-day period, U.S. and Iraqi servicemembers
together have discovered 30 hidden weapons caches in Baqubah, Iraq,
officials said yesterday. The U.S. servicemembers are from the 3rd Heavy
Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, Task Force Band of Brothers,
and the Iraqi soldiers are with the 1st Battalion, 2nd Brigade, 5th Iraqi
Army Division.

Each discovered cache prevents enemy forces from wounding or killing
civilians and military members, officials said.

Elsewhere, Iraqi army marksmen, supported by soldiers from
Multinational Division Baghdad, killed five terrorists planting roadside bombs
north of Taji, Iraq, March 9. Iraqi and coalition troops recovered two 130
mm artillery rounds and one AK-47 rifle from the terrorists, officials
said.

Additionally, a large car bomb near the Al Yarack hospital detonated
March 9, wounding four civilians and destroying three vehicles in central
Baghdad. Iraqi soldiers from the 2nd Battalion, 5th Brigade, 6th Iraqi
Army Division, along with Iraqi police, secured the area. The wounded
were treated and taken to a nearby medical facility for further
observation.
