BAGHDAD — While conducting a combat security patrol, one MND-B Soldier died and four others were wounded when an explosively-formed projectile detonated in an eastern section of the Iraqi capital April 6.

During the past month, elements of this unit conducted four cordon and search operations resulting in the detention of 14 insurgents and two weapons caches found.

These operations help reduce the threat of insurgent attacks and continue to aid in providing a more secure and safe living environment for the Iraqi people.

Iraqi security forces and Multi-National Division – Baghdad Soldiers continue conducting operations in support of Operation Fardh Al-Qanoon to help set on-going conditions for a stable and self-reliant Iraq.

The deceased Soldier’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
