U.S., Iraqi Forces Detain Three, Find Weapons

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, April 10, 2009 – Iraqi forces detained three suspected terrorists and found weapons during recent operations in and around Baghdad, military officials reported.

In Baghdad’s Mansour district April 8, U.S. and Iraqi soldiers discovered a cache of homemade bombs after a tip from a local resident. The cache was moved to a nearby coalition base for further examination by explosive experts.

About 100 miles southeast of Baghdad, near the town of Kut in Wasit province, Iraq forces captured three people April 7 for their suspected involvement in a rocket attack earlier that day on Forward Operating Base Delta – a facility operated by Iraqi police, army and special tactics units.

Iraqi response forces also recovered two rockets at the suspected launch site where the suspects were detained. No injuries were reported from the attack or follow-on operation.
