U.S. troops captured seven suspected militants believed linked to al-Qaida in a raid Wednesday in the central Iraqi city of Baqouba, the military said.
Troops from the 4th Infantry Division carried out the raid targeting an “anti-coalition cell” that may have ties to Osaka bin Laden’s terror group, a statement from U.S. command said.
Seven suspects specifically targeted in the raid and 15 other people were detained, the statement said.
Baqouba is in the so-called “Sunni Triangle,” north and west of Baghdad, the heartland of anti-U.S. violence in Iraq.
