The Iraqi army on Saturday (August 18th) arrested six suspected al-Qaeda fighters and seized two car bombs in their possession in an attack on a village east of Tikrit, the capital of Salaheddine province, the Iraqi Defence Ministry said.
Maj. Gen. Mohammed Hamed Kamar, commander of the army's 4th Division, told Al-Shorfa that an Iraqi army force arrested the suspects during military operations in villages in the district of Tuz Khormato, 90 kilometres east of Tikrit.
The detainees are now under interrogation in a security detention facility, he said, adding that the army's explosive ordnance disposal team defused the car bombs, as well as eight sticky bombs also found in the suspects' possession.
