Iraqis Stop Carbomb Attack by Shooting Bomb

The American Forces Press Service reports that a car bomber was stopped by Iraqi Public Order Brigade personnel when they shot the car bomb. The bomb was constructed from two 130 mm artillery rounds, which exploded when shot, killing the terrorist.

An Iraqi army unit independently tracked down and captured three individuals suspected of detonating an IED southwest of Baghdad on Oct. 12.

The IED detonated on an Iraqi army convoy around mid-afternoon, slightly wounding several Iraqi soldiers, who were evacuated for medical treatment.

Soldiers from 4th Brigade, 6th Iraqi Army Division, tracked the suspected bomb triggermen to a nearby mosque. After receiving permission, they searched the premises and found and detained three individuals with a remote detonator.

Iraqi police joined forces with members of Task Force Baghdad to capture five suspected terrorists in eastern Baghdad Oct. 11.

This is the second mission in the last few days where intelligence from the community directly led to the capture of suspected terrorists, officials said. On Oct. 8, the same unit detained five other terror suspects.
