Page 16 News - 2/1/06

On the block for Page 16 News today we have first a report of the "Peace Religion" Islam, and it's advent "Freedom Fighters"

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't using your mosque as a fortified firing position against the beliefs of Islam?
"BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqi Security Forces responded, with Soldiers from 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, to a call stating Anti-Iraqi Forces had killed several civilians inside a mosque in central Baghdad Jan. 27.
Further reports indicated 30 to 50 terrorists were operating from within the mosque and were firing rocket-propelled grenades and small arms at Iraqi Police.
Upon arrival to the mosque, small-arms fire fell on ISF patrols and supporting aviation assets trying to help resolve the situation.
Three suspected terrorists have been detained in connection with the incident.
No casualties have been reported."

For one more report of Page 16 News, we look further into Centcom, and the press releases they have.

BAGHDAD, Iraq -- Acting on a tip, MND-B Soldiers were moving to the house of a suspected kidnapping cell leader Jan. 28 west of Baghdad when they came across the decapitated bodies of three Iraqis on a soccer field.
The Soldiers from 1st Battalion, 87th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade, 10th Mountain Division, detained the suspected criminal who lives just north of the soccer field. In the house, Soldiers found a pistol, a sniper rifle, improvised explosive device batteries, timers and circuit boards.
The patrol notified Iraqi authorities who later removed the bodies of the three Iraqis.
While searching three other houses in the area, the U.S. patrol detained three additional suspects when they found four 155mm rounds, two with cell phones attached and rigged for detonation, numerous IED trigger devices, one AK-47 and anti-Iraqi forces literature.
In a separate incident, Soldiers from 1st Battalion, 71st Cavalry Regiment, 1-10 Mnt., were conducting a patrol in central Baghdad Jan. 29 when they discovered two dead local nationals with spent 9mm casings next to them. The patrol stayed on the scene until Iraqi Police arrived.
These incidents are under investigation.
