US forces targeted al-Qaida fighters Thursday north of Baghdad, killing three suspected insurgents and detaining 11, the military said. Six suspected insurgents with alleged ties to al-Qaida were captured and weapons including rocket-propelled grenades were seized during operations west of Taji, an air base 20 kilometers (12 miles) north of the capital, according to a statement. An attack helicopter then killed three armed men approaching the US troops as they were leaving the area with the detainees, it said. US forces also captured five suspects believed to be part of a network helping foreign fighters stage attacks near Samarra, 95 kilometers (60 miles) north of Baghdad, the military said.
