Roadside bomb strikes MND-B patrol
Multi-National Division – Baghdad PAO

BAGHDAD — Six MND-B Soldiers and one interpreter were killed when an improvised explosive device detonated in the western section of the Iraqi capital May 19.

During the past week, elements of this unit have found numerous weapons caches including grenades, small arms, ammunition and IED making material, as well as a possible vehicle IED and a safe house used by insurgents to plan attacks and torture innocent Iraqis. Finding these weapons caches helps reduce the threat of insurgent attacks and continues to aid in providing a more secure and safe living environment for the Iraqi people.

The names of the deceased are being withheld pending notification of next of kin and release by the Department of Defense.
