WASHINGTON, March 11, 2007 – Coalition forces killed one terrorist and captured 61 others during various raids and operations throughout Iraq over the past three days.

Today, during operations targeting al Qaeda in Iraq and foreign fighter facilitators, combined forces captured a suspected foreign terrorist facilitation network leader and one of his associates west of Abu Ghraib, officials said.

Elsewhere today, combined forces captured four suspects northwest of Karmah and three suspects in Fallujah. The seven suspects had alleged ties to al Qaeda in Iraq and foreign-fighter facilitation.

Northeast of Asad, coalition forces detained three suspects who allegedly operate an al Qaeda associated foreign fighter training camp, and coalition forces captured three suspected al Qaeda members operating west of Taji.

"Coalition forces are working diligently to eliminate al Qaeda and foreign facilitation networks in Iraq," said Army Lt. Col. Christopher Garver, a Multinational Force Iraq spokesman.
