Weapons Cache Uncovered in East Baghdad Mosque

Iraqi security forces find weapons cache in east Baghdad mosque

CAMP TAJI, Iraq – The increased presence of Iraqi and Multi-National Division – Baghdad forces on the streets of eastern Baghdad continued to produce results as Iraqi troops found weapons caches inside a mosque and several surrounding buildings in Al Shamisiyah Feb. 15.

The cache was found inside the Al Farkan Mosque and included six mortar tubes, multiple rocket-propelled grenades, several AK-47s and other weapons.

The cache was discovered by Iraqi Soldiers from the 1st and 3rd Battalions of the 2nd Infantry Brigade, 6th Iraqi Army Division. Soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 26th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division provided security for the operation while the Iraqis conducted the search.

Why isn't anyone else blogging about this? Or is finding RPG's hidden in Mosques no longer of interest to anyone?
