10 wanted men, 22 other al-Qaeda suspects detained

BAGHDAD – Coalition forces struck al-Qaeda in Iraq’s bombing networks in Mosul, Baghdad and the Tigris River Valley Thursday and Friday, capturing 10 wanted men and detaining 22 additional suspected terrorists.

In Mosul, Coalition forces further degraded AQI leadership when they detained 14 suspected terrorists, including two wanted men. One of the men, detained Thursday, is believed to be involved in car bombings, kidnappings and other attacks in East Mosul. The other wanted man was detained Friday and reportedly supervised car-bombing operations in the city, including attacks against Iraqi and Coalition forces.

Three precision operations around Baghdad Thursday netted three wanted men allegedly involved in car bombing networks there. One man is suspected of operating in the Northern Belt around Baghdad and was captured in Tarmiyah, about 30 kilometers north of the city. The two other suspects are reportedly tied to AQI networks in the capital, and were captured west of Baghdad, in Abu Ghraib and Fallujah.

During an operation in Bayji Friday, Coalition forces continued their assault on the Tigris River Valley bombing network, capturing four men reported to be mid-level leaders and 10 additional suspected terrorists. Another man wanted for his alleged involvement with AQI in Bayji was detained Thursday.

“Baghdad and the Tigris River Valley are a safer place for Iraqi families because of the continued Coalition Force pressure directed against al-Qaeda in Iraq,” said Maj. John Hall.
