The 3rd Emergency Response Unit arrested four individuals today during a joint security operation conducted in Bayji, located approximately 99 km southwest of Kirkuk, to arrest a suspected member of an AQI explosives cell.
Based on a warrant issued by an Iraqi court, Iraqi Police and U.S. advisors searched two residential buildings for a suspected AQI member believed to have been involved in planning vehicle-borne IED attacks within the region.
An individual who attempted to flee the scene on foot into another building was later caught by the security team.
Evidence collected at the scene and preliminary questioning led Iraqi Police to arrest four suspected criminal associates of the warranted individual.
