American forces arrested three "extremists" in high-level jobs and plotting kidnapping operations at Baghdad International Airport, the military said in a statement Thursday. It said those arrested were plotting to kidnap Iraqi forces and civilians working with US troops. "The corrupt workers are suspected of having positioned themselves in several high-level jobs at the airport to establish a base and conduct kidnapping operations against Iraqi Security Forces and innocent civilians who stand up against the group's criminal activities," said the statement. "The men are further suspected of participating in attacks on Iraqi and Coalition Forces with improvised explosive devices and mortars." The statement did not specify of which group the detained men were members.
