US-led forces detained 16 suspected militants Friday during raids in Baghdad's main Shi'ite district targeting a cell allegedly smuggling a powerful weapon from Iran into Iraq that can pierce armored vehicles, the military said. The military also announced that its forces had discovered and destroyed several caches of weapons over the last few months south of Baghdad, including Iranian-made rockets and mortars.
