Iraqi Terrorist Camp Raided

The United States Army said Iraqi security forces on Monday arrested 98 suspected insurgents in a raid on the Suleiman Bak area, southeast of Baghdad. According to a U.S. Army announcement, they also uncovered a large terrorist camp which included a cache of explosives and weapons.

According to the London-based A-Sharq Al-Awsat the announcement said the Iraqi army, with U.S. assistance, encountered some resistance at the beginning of the operation but managed to control the situation. Special forces in Iraq carried out the raid together with the Iraqi police.

Last week the Joint Coordination Center, a unit including Iraqi and U.S. forces, announced that 80 fighters were killed in a joint operation against a training camp north of Baghdad.
