COALITION FORCES DETAIN NINE IN SEARCH FOR MISSING SOLDIERS
BAGHDAD, Iraq Coalition Forces detained 11 individuals during operations Friday and Saturday, including nine suspected of involvement in the May 12 kidnapping of three U.S. Soldiers.
Coalition Forces continued to follow tips and information leads in the disappearance of three U.S. Soldiers, raiding a building near Amiriyah Saturday morning. During the raid, Coalition Forces detained nine individuals suspected of involvement in the kidnappings.
Friday, intelligence reports led Coalition Forces to a site in Baqubah where they detained two individuals allegedly associated with the command network of al-Qaeda in Iraq.
In other operations Saturday morning, Coalition Forces discovered two weapons caches. One cache south of Baghdad contained weapons, magazines and assault vests, and another northeast of Habbiniyah housed eight rockets. The weapons were safely destroyed on site.
We will not stop searching until we find our Soldiers, said Lt. Col. Christopher Garver, MNF-I spokesperson. Were using all available assets and continuing to assault the al-Qaeda in Iraq network.
Thanks bnelson. We must keep hope that these brave soldiers are still alive. This is what keeps the moral up of those who are seaching. God Bless each and every one of them, and all of you on FR who have been praying for my son and his brothers.
