Diyala police spokesperson Lt. Col. Ghaleb al-Karkhi told Al-Shorfa that confessions from terrorism detainees prompted police to launch a security operation on a residential building where the wanted individuals were staying.

Al-Karkhi said the five detainees are "three al-Qaeda members and two collaborators".

He said police found and seized a quantity of explosives at the house during the operation.
