Suspect in soldiers abductions in Iraq is detained

OWESAT, Iraq Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division and the Iraqi army detained a man on Friday suspected of abducting two soldiers missing since May 12.

Ibrahim Abid Aboud al-Janabi was detained after his sister, who says her family imprisoned and tortured her, told soldiers that al-Janabi mutilated and buried two soldiers remains in a sand pit a quarter of a mile from their home.

Soldiers dug holes at the initial site but came up empty. They will continue looking for remains among the vast sand dunes.

Were going back out there later this evening, said Capt. Cliff Kazmarek, commander of Company B, 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade.

The woman also gave soldiers information on roadside bomb and mortar locations, then told them about three of her other brothers insurgent activities.

Spc. Alex R. Jimenez and Pvt. Byron W. Fouty, both of the 2nd Brigade, 10th Mountain Division, were abducted after an ambush on an observation post near Yusufiyah this spring.
