London, May 31 – Coalition Forces detained five “suspected terrorists” and one “suspected cell leader” on Wednesday during raids in the Baghdad slum Sadr City.

“The individuals detained during the raid are believed to be members of the secret cell terrorist network known for facilitating the transport of weapons and explosively formed penetrators, or EFPs, from Iran to Iraq, as well as bringing militants from Iraq to Iran for terrorist training”, the Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF-I) said in a statement.

“Intelligence reports indicate the cell leader that was targeted and detained during the morning’s operation is suspected of being a key weapons trafficker to include the trafficking of small arms, mortars and other munitions”, it said.

“The capture of weapon traffickers is sure to disrupt the flow of weapons into Iraq”, said Lt. Col. Christopher Garver, MNF-I spokesperson.
