London, Jul. 28 – The Iraqi army arrested a “cell leader” of the rogue Jaysh al-Mahdi militia near the southwest Baghdad neighbourhood of Bayaa on July 26, the Coalition said on Friday.

Iraqi Army Soldiers, with U.S. Special Forces as advisors, detained their primary suspect without incident during the early morning operation in Baghdad, the Multi-National Corps – Iraq (MNC-I) said in a statement.

“The primary suspect is believed to command a rogue JAM improvised explosive device cell that is allegedly responsible for attacks on Coalition Forces.
