3 Iraqi Civilians Killed, 9 Wounded in Roadside Bombing

Iraqi police say at least three civilians were killed and nine wounded Saturday when a roadside bomb struck a vehicle south of Baghdad.

A police official said the attack occurred early Saturday in Iskandariyah, 60 kilometers south of Baghdad.

In central Iraq, the U.S. military says coalition forces captured two wanted individuals and three suspected terrorists Saturday during an operation northwest of Muqdadiyah. U.S.-led forces also detained six suspected militants during another operation Saturday in Bayji, targeting an associate of al-Qaida in Iraq senior leaders.

The military says the targeted person is suspected of a logistics network responsible for supplying weapons and supplies to foreign terrorists.

He is also believed to have many contacts within the southern belt terrorist network, which facilitates the movement of foreign terrorists and suicide bombers.
