The Iraqi police in Anbar province arrested two suspected al-Qaeda members who were distributing leaflets inciting people against policemen in Fallujah, the Iraqi Interior Ministry said Tuesday (February 26th).

"The leaflets the police found in the detainees' possession include speeches inciting citizens in the province against the Iraqi police and army, vowing to kill them and demanding that citizens refuse to co-operate with them," Interior Ministry spokesman Brig. Gen. Saad Maan told Al-Shorfa.

The "detainees confessed to belonging to al-Qaeda during an initial police investigation", he said.
