Iraqis Kill Terror Financier, Arrest Suspects

Compiled from U.S. Forces Iraq News Releases

WASHINGTON, July 2, 2010 – Iraqi security forces killed an al-Qaida in Iraq financier and arrested three terrorism suspects in recent operations with U.S. advisors, military officials reported.

Iraqi forces and U.S. advisors conducted a vehicle stop in eastern Mosul yesterday to apprehend the financier, who is believed to be responsible for the movement of foreign fighters into Iraq and allegedly has assisted in vehicle-borne bomb attacks.

The wanted man exhibited hostile intent toward Iraqi forces that then initiated escalation-of-force procedures and killed him and a criminal associate. Information and evidence gathered at the scene led Iraqi forces to identify and arrest an additional suspected criminal associate of the financier.

Today in Jalula, northeast of Baghdad, Iraqi forces and U.S. advisors searched several buildings for a suspected al-Qaida in Iraq member allegedly responsible for conducting attacks on Iraqi and U.S. forces. Information and evidence gathered at the scene led Iraqi forces to identify and arrest two suspected criminal associates of the wanted man.
