Multi-National Force-Iraq

BAGHDAD, Iraq – Coalition forces find two car bombs and detained four suspected terrorists during raids in Husaybah Oct. 24.

The safe houses were suspected of housing senior al Qaeda in Iraq terrorists and foreign fighters who used them as operational bases to plan and conduct attacks against Iraqi security and Coalition forces in the Husaybah and Karabilah areas.

The two vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices were found outside the safe houses and were fully operational for use against Iraqi security and Coalition forces. The VBIEDs were destroyed.
