U.S. Targets Iraqi Guerrilla Financier

U.S. troops north of Baghdad seized $1.9 million in cash and false identification documents in a raid targeting the suspected financier of insurgents, the U.S. military said Monday. American soldiers also raided a neighborhood in the northern city of Mosul, witnesses said. U.S. troops in Samarra seized the cash and arrested one person in the operation Sunday, said Maj. Josslyn Aberle, spokeswoman for the 4th Infantry Division. “They didn’t catch the original target but they detained one of his relatives and seized the money,” Aberle said. Samarra, some 70 miles north of Baghdad, was the site of heavy fighting Nov. 30 between Iraqi guerrillas and U.S. soldiers who were delivering new Iraqi currency to local banks. Witnesses in Mosul, about 250 miles north of Baghdad, said U.S. soldiers cordoned off a large area of the city. Full Story
