Suspected Terrorists Apprehended For Helicopter Shoot-Down

An Iraqi civilian helped Task Force Baghdad soldiers find and apprehend six terrorists suspected of shooting down a civilian Mi-8 helicopter April 21, coalition officials in Baghdad, Iraq, announced.

“The Iraqi citizen told the soldiers he knew where the blue KIA pickup truck the terrorists used during the attack was parked and led them to the site,” a Multinational Force Iraq release stated. “When the soldiers got there, several other local residents confirmed the first tip and showed the soldiers where the terrorists lived.”

Soldiers started to search two houses at 12:30 a.m. Saturday. At the first house, they captured three men and confiscated bomb-making material. At the second house, the unit detained three more suspects involved in making improvised explosive devices, officials said, adding that all six men were taken into custody for questioning.
