Multi-National Forces capture nine suspected criminals


MOSUL, Iraq -- Multi-National Force Soldiers from the 1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Division (Stryker Brigade Combat Team), detained nine people in northern Iraq Feb. 5.
     Soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 5th Infantry Regiment, detained nine people suspected of terrorist activities during operations in Ninewah Province. While conducting cordon and search operations, the 1-5th detained seven people south of Mosul and two others east of Tal Afar. Suspects are in custody with no Multi-National Forces injuries reported.
     Iraqi Security Force and Multi-National Force operations in the Ninewa Province and the Mosul area resulted in a safe election day during which thousands of Iraqi citizens exercised their right to vote, influenced their future, and proved the terrorists to be in the minority. Since Jan. 5, Iraqi Security Forces and Multi-National Forces have detained 444 people and confiscated numerous weapons and munitions.
