Dispatches from the Front:
WASHINGTON, May 11, 2009 -- Coalition and Iraqi forces detained one suspect and uncovered a weapons cache in operations last week, military officials said.
During a combined mission in northwest Baghdad's Mansour district May 7, troops detained a man suspected of downing a coalition forces helicopter in 2007 and supporting al-Qaida in Iraq activities in the Iraqi capital.
In a separate operation May 7, Iraqi security forces and coalition forces discovered a weapons cache in the Adhamiyah district of northern Baghdad. The stockpile included various mortars and other military equipment.
A coalition forces explosive ordnance disposal team secured and disposed of the cache.
