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

BAGHDAD – While conducting combat operations in the western section of the Iraqi capital, a Multi-National Division-Baghdad Soldier was killed when an improvised explosive device detonated Saturday. Two other Soldiers were also wounded in the attack.

In the past week, elements of this unit have conducted several targeted raids capturing two suspected terrorists as well as discovering several weapons caches including homemade explosives and mortar rounds. The arrest of 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 Soldier’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin and release by the Department of Defense.
