Iraqi forces seize suspected insurgents
http://www.swissinfo.org/sen/swissinfo.html?siteSect=14...

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqi soldiers backed by U.S. helicopters have killed several
suspected insurgents and seized 131 more in a dawn raid, capturing tons of explosives
earmarked for attacks on the holy city of Kerbala, officials say.

"It was a surprise operation based on intensive surveillance by military intelligence,"
Defence Minister Hazim al-Shaalan told Reuters on Saturday. "It was very successful."

Earlier this week Iraqi police commandos said they killed 85 militants in a raid on a
suspected insurgent training camp near Baghdad, hailing it as a breakthrough against the
insurgency.

Shaalan said several suspected militants were killed in the latest operation, which
began late on Friday and culminated in the dawn raid just outside Kerbala, about 100 km
(60 miles) southwest of Baghdad.
