GIs Arrest 2 Iraqi Police Terror Suspects

U.S. soldiers arrested a pair of Iraqi policemen on suspicion they were members of Saddam Hussein’s Fedayeen militia, officials said Sunday. The two were arrested Saturday at their homes, where police also confiscated a rifle, pistol and two machine guns, said Maj. Josslyn Aberle, spokeswoman of the 4th Infantry Division. The Fedayeen was effectively Saddam’s private army and one of the groups believed to be behind the ongoing insurgency against the U.S.-led Coalition. The arrests came after two Iraqis believed to have orchestrated riots in Beiji in October turned themselves into members of the division’s 1st Brigade near the town. While they were being questioned, they tipped off soldiers to the pair of Iraqi police. Aberle had no other details. All four men were being detained in Tikrit, where Task Force Ironhorse is headquartered. Full Story
