WASHINGTON, Dec. 20, 2007 – Coalition forces captured a suspected “special groups” leader during operations yesterday in the northern Baghdad area, military officials reported.
The targeted individual was the special groups criminal element leader for Diyala province and oversaw logistics and operations in the area.
