WASHINGTON, Aug. 13, 2008 – Coalition and Iraqi forces detained seven suspected terrorists and found weapons during recent operations in Iraq, military officials said.

In today’s operations:

-- Coalition troops in Baghdad’s Mansour district captured two suspected propaganda experts. The individuals reportedly are brothers who work for the Kataib Hezbollah terrorist group, uploading video of the organization’s attacks to the World Wide Web. The troops confiscated weapons and computer equipment during the search.

-- An alleged al-Qaida member and an associate were captured in Baghdad’s northern belt for their involvement in attacks on Iraqi security forces and local citizens.

-- In Mosul, coalition forces detained three individuals for their alleged connection to an al-Qaida group responsible for transporting foreign terrorists into Iraq.

Yesterday in Baghdad’s Karadah district, coalition forces destroyed two rockets and firing systems found by Iraqi policemen patrolling the area.
