Suspected al-Qaida commander seized

BAGHDAD, April 28 (UPI) -- Iraqi army troops succeeded in capturing the suspected al-Qaida commander in the province of Salaheddine, north of Baghdad.

An official source in the province said Friday that Ali Abdel Qader was seized in an ambush set up on the Tigris River, north of the city of Samarra.

The source said the operation was carried out successfully with the help of intelligence information gathered by the Iraqi army over the past few days.

In another development, Iraqi police discovered an arms cache in the southern city of Basra, believed to be remnants of the 2003 war between the Iraqi army and U.S.-led foreign forces.

A security official said the arms included 50 mortar rounds, two Russian-made Katyusha rockets and three mortars.
