BAGHDAD – Coalition forces killed 15 terrorists and detained three other suspects during simultaneous raids north of Baqubah June 20.

CNSNEWS Excerpt: A U.S. military spokesman on Tuesday said in the course of searching for Menchaca and Tucker, one coalition force member was killed and 12 others wounded. But he said the search also resulted in the deaths of several foreign fighters and the detention of 78 suspected insurgents. "The key is that we did receive 66 intelligence tips," Army Maj. Gen. William Caldwell said at a press briefing Tuesday. Caldwell said 18 of those tips were rated as "actionable." He also said coalition forces took out another senior member of the al Qaeda network in the same area where the two American soldiers disappeared.
