London, May 04 – The U.S. military announced on Thursday that two suspected “terrorists” had been detained in Baghdad while smuggling roadside bombs to Iraq from neighbouring Iran.

“Coalition Forces detained two suspected terrorists Thursday morning during raids in Sadr City”, the U.S.-led Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF-I) said in a statement.

“The individuals targeted during the raid are suspected members of a 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”, it said.

“During the course of the morning’s operations, Coalition Forces targeted a concentration of buildings associated with the terrorist network.

“Intelligence reports also indicate the secret cell has ties to a kidnapping network that conducts attacks within Iraq”, the MNF-I added.

“This and other recent operations in the region highlight the deliberate, methodical dismantlement of terrorist networks in Iraq and those who contribute to their illegal actions”, said Lt. Col. Christopher Garver, MNF-I spokesperson.
