MND-B patrol struck by roadside bomb
Multi-National Division – Baghdad PAO

BAGHDAD – Multi-National Division – While conducting combat operations in the southwest section of the Iraqi capital, two Multi-National Division-Baghdad Soldiers were killed when an improvised explosive device detonated May 30.

Two other Soldiers were also wounded in the attack.

In the past week, elements of this unit have detained two suspected insurgents and found weapons caches including small arms weapons, ammunition, and rocket-propelled grenades. Arresting these individuals and finding these weapons caches helps reduce the threat of terrorist attacks and aids in providing a more secure and safe living environment for the Iraqi people.

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