BAGHDAD — While conducting a combat security patrol in the southern section of the Iraqi capital, one Multi-National Division-Baghdad Soldier was killed and two others were wounded when an improvised explosive device detonated May 26.

An Iraqi interpreter was also injured in the attack.

During the past few weeks, elements of this unit have detained 32 suspected terrorist and found 37 weapons caches of varies sizes including rifles, ammunition, IED-making materials, mortars, rocket-propelled grenades and
homemade explosives.

Finding these weapons caches and arresting the individuals affiliated with them helps reduce the threat of insurgent attacks and aids in providing a more secure and safe living environment for the Iraqi people.

The deceased Soldier’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin and release by the Department of Defense.
