Iran Focus: London, Sep. 03 – Iraqi security forces arrested a militant extremist leader and one of his subordinate leaders during an early morning intelligence-driven raid in southern Babil Province on Sunday, the Coalition announced.

The “suspected terrorist” is “directly involved in the majority of terrorist acts” in Hillah and mortar attacks on Coalition bases and the Regional Embassy Office, the Multi-National Corps – Iraq (MNC-I) said in a statement on Monday.

“Iraqi citizens have reported that he leads militias to assassinate locals and has recruited a sniper with training in Iran to target Iraqi Police and Iraqi Army Soldiers”, the statement said.

“Scouts from the 6th Iraqi Army conducted a second operation in Baghdad detaining a suspected extremist cell leader and one cell member. The suspected cell leader heads an explosively formed projectile cell and is believed to be responsible for an Aug. 14 EFP attack against Coalition Forces and two direct fire attacks against a Coalition base in the Baghdad area July 31 and Aug. 18.
