Iraq: insurgents linked to US Marine deaths caught

The US military says that Iraqi soldiers have captured two suspected al-Qaida in Iraq insurgents linked to a May suicide bombing that killed four US Marines. The military says the suspects have been linked to various wings of al-Qaida in Iraq and were seized during a raid on July 18 north of Baghdad. Friday's statement says "intelligence reports connect the suspects to a May suicide vest attack that resulted in the deaths of four US Marines and several sheiks" during a meeting. The military also says the two suspects are associated with an al-Qaida wing that "manipulates young boys to become suicide bombers" and that one of the suspects is believed to be a recruiter for that wing.
