Coalition Arrests 285 in Raids

Almost 300 suspected terrorists were detained overnight in the largest joint U.S.-Iraqi military offensive in Baghdad (search), the military said Monday.

The ongoing offensive, dubbed Operation Squeeze Play (search), is centered on western Baghdad's Abu Ghraib district and is targeting militants suspected of attacking the U.S. detention facility there and the road linking downtown to the international airport, the military said in a statement.

Separately, U.S. soldiers conducted six Baghdad raids on Sunday, detaining 22 suspected militants and confiscating weapons and $6 million in American currency, the military said.
