BAGHDAD, July 6 (VOI) Co An Iraqi army force found two caches of arms and explosives in northern Baghdad, an official spokesman for Baghdad's security operations said on Sunday.

"Last night, a force from the Iraqi army's 22nd Brigade, 6th Division, discovered two caches containing arms, ammunition and explosives in Baghdad's northern area of al-Shula during raid-and-search operations in the area," Spokesman Qassem Ata told Aswat al-Iraq-Voices of Iraq- (VOI).

"The caches contained 103 mortars, two Katyusha rockets, an RPG7 missile, an Austrian cannonball, and 20 kg of C4 explosives," Ata added.

In mid-February 2007, Iraqi security forces launched a wide-scale security operation, called Fardh al-Qanoon (Law Imposing), in Baghdad with the aim of tracking down gunmen and restoring order to the Iraqi capital.
