BAGHDAD (BNO NEWS) — Iraqi special operations forces arrested three suspected Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists in Baghdad on Thursday, U.S. officials said on Sunday.

The soldiers were operating under the authority of a warrant issued by the Central Investigative Court of Karkh after intelligence information pointed them to the suspects.

The apprehended individuals were allegedly affiliated with Al Qaeda in Iraq and are said to be responsible for conducting terrorist activities against Iraqi government officials and security forces.

“The arrest will reduce insurgent attacks against Iraqi security forces and Iraqi government personnel in the area,” the U.S. military said in a statement.
