Female detainee released
BAGHDAD, Iraq – On Oct. 19, based on intelligence and credible reporting, Coalition Forces conducted a raid on suspected terrorist safe house in Fallujah. During the course of the raid, three males and one female were detained. The female who was detained was released by Multi National Force - West this morning to Fallujah city officials.
During the initial questioning of all personnel on the objective, Coalition Forces decided to detain the female due to voluntary statements she made. These statements gave Coalition forces reason to believe that she was in contact with al Qaeda in Iraq terrorists and in support of their activities in the Fallujah area.
Additionally, she was treated well and provided food, water and shelter and was given the utmost courtesy and respect. Female Coalition members were present at all times during the detention process to ensure she was treated well and within cultural norms.
