Terrorist bombing suspects captured

Multi-National Force-Iraq

BAGHDAD , Iraq – Over the last two days, Multi-National Forces captured three Al Qaida terrorists associated with bombing operations in the Baghdad area. Those captured include: Qutaba Abdullah Monsoor Hussan (Al Zobi), aka Abu Qutaba; Arkan Kashia Shani Ahmed (Al Mahadidi), aka Abu Arkan; and Muhammed Salman Abu Jasim (Abu id al Tazzirah), aka Abu Sultan.

The three captured terrorists are believed to be associated with Al Qaida's chief bombing coordinator for Baghdad, Muhammad Rabi Hadi Jassir, al – Dulaymi, aka Abu Thar.

Compelling intelligence led Multi-National Forces to the neighborhoods where these Al Qaida terrorists were hiding. Once surrounded, these terrorists surrendered without a fight.

Iraqi forces are now looking for Al Qaida bombing expert Muhammad Rabi Hadi Jassir al – Dulaymi, aka Abu Thar. If you have any information on Thar, or other Al Qaida terrorists involved in bombings, please contact Iraqi authorities by calling the nationwide tips hotline at 778-4076 (within Baghdad) and 1-778-4076 (outside of Baghdad.)
