Fifteen suspected militants were detained by the U.S.-led forces on Monday in a series of raids targeting al-Qaida in Iraq leaders, the military said.

Troops on a raid in Hillah, about 95 kilometers (60 miles) south of Baghdad, captured nine suspects, including one person believed to be a leader in al-Qaida, the military said.

In two raids near Taji, about 20 kilometers (12 miles) north of Baghdad, troops detained three people with suspected links to senior leaders in the group, the military said.

Two more suspected were captured east of Balad, 80 kilometers (50 miles) north of Baghdad, and another one was detained north of Fallujah, 65 kilometers (40 miles) west of Baghdad, the military said.
