London, Jun. 14 – The U.S.-led military in Iraq announced on Wednesday that it had arrested two “suspected terrorists” linked to Iran during operations in Baghdad.

“Coalition Forces killed one terrorist and detained two suspected terrorists during operations targeting secret cell network operations in Baghdad”, said a statement by the Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF-I).

“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”, it said.

The “suspected terrorists” were assessed to be “associates of a secret cell key leader” — the targeted individual of the morning raids.

“Intelligence reports indicate the targeted individual of the morning’s operation is associated with a kidnapping cell and is believed to be directly involved in the November Ministry of Health kidnappings. Additionally, intelligence reports indicate that the targeted individual’s cell specializes in the emplacement of improvised explosive devises and EFPs”, the statement added.
