London, May 24 – Coalition forces in Iraq killed two “terrorists”, detained 19 “suspected terrorists” and uncovered a cache of Iranian money and bomb-making materials Wednesday morning in the Baghdad slum Sadr City, the U.S.-led military in Iraq announced.

“The individual targeted during the raid is suspected of facilitating weapons shipments from Iran to secret cell terrorist elements in Baghdad, Basrah and Maysan province”, a statement by the Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF-I) said.

“Rogue militia elements and terrorists are seeking to destroy the future of Iraq”, said Lt. Col. Christopher Garver, MNF-I spokesperson. “We will continue to capture or kill them and dismantle their organisations”.

Coalition Forces searched 11 buildings during the operation. “As Coalition Forces moved to the site, four armed terrorists engaged them with small arms and automatic weapons. The ground force, acting in self-defense toward the hostile threat, returned fire and confirmed two of the four terrorists were killed”, the statement said, adding, “As they continued to search the buildings, Coalition Forces found a large quantity of Iranian money, more than $6,000 in U.S. money and improvised explosive device-making materials”.
