Iraqi Security Forces arrested a suspected al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) explosives expert today during a joint operation conducted in southern Baghdad.
ISF and U.S. advisors searched a residential building for the suspected explosives expert who works directly for AQI leadership to coordinate and carry out attacks within the capital city.
Within the building, the security team discovered circuitry, wiring and tools that are often used to make improvised explosive devices, as well as several IED triggers.
The evidence discovered at the scene and preliminary questioning led ISF to identify and arrest the targeted individual without incident.
