Coalition, Iraqis Capture Terror Suspect, Seize Weapons

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Nov. 24, 2008 – Coalition and Iraqi forces captured a suspected terrorist and seized two weapons caches in Iraq over the past four days, military officials said.

Troops captured a terror suspect during an Iraqi security forces-led raid in Mosul on Nov. 22.

“Terrorists are feeling the pressure of the [Iraqi security forces], and they are running out of places to hide in and around Mosul,” said U.S. Army Maj. Gary Dangerfield, a coalition spokesman.

Elsewhere, a resident’s tip Nov. 20 led Iraqi troops to a weapons cache buried by the side of a road in Baghdad’s Sadr City district. The troops also seized a second cache. The caches consisted of an explosive designed to penetrate armor, rockets, mortars, grenades, projectiles, an anti-tank mine, anti-tank grenade rifles, demolition charges, and other military equipment.
