Nov. 6, 2009 - Iraqi security forces arrested five suspected terrorists today in two security operations. In northeastern Baghdad, the Iraqi soldiers, with U.S. advisors, searched two buildings looking for a Promise Day Brigade terrorist group leader who allegedly coordinates attacks against security forces in Iraq.

The Iraqi soldiers questioned and then arrested three people suspected of being Promise Day Brigade associates without incident.

Near Sharqat, about 50 miles northwest of Kirkuk, Iraqi police and U.S. advisors searched two buildings for a suspected al-Qaida in Iraq member who has ties to senior leaders of the terrorist group.

Based on evidence at the scene, two suspects were arrested without incident.
