London, Sep. 03 – U.S.-led forces arrested seven suspected weapons facilitators during a pre-dawn raid on Sunday in the town of Qasarin, north of Baghdad.

“Coalition forces conducted the raid to capture seven suspected weapons distributors that may be connected to various Special Groups operating in and around Baghdad. Those detained are suspected of being responsible for distributing deadly explosively formed penetrators (EFPs) and other weapons flowing from Iran into Iraq”, the Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF-I) said in a statement.

“Coalition forces believe information provided by these detainees may lead to more detentions of persons affiliated with weapons smuggling networks”, it said.

“Several structures searched during the raid revealed numerous weapons and associated ammunition, rocket propelled grenade components, and electronic devices suspected to be EFP components. Various documents and photographs were also found and confiscated for further analysis”, it added.
