RAMADI, Iraq -- Two men suspected in an attack that killed five U.S. soldiers and left two missing more than seven months ago have been arrested.
The men were arrested in Ramadi, a former insurgent stronghold west of Baghdad, The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.
Unknown still are the whereabouts of Pvt. Byron Fouty, 19, of Waterford, Mich., and Spc. Alex Jimenez, 25, of Lawrence, Mass., who have been missing since May 12, when they were captured while conducting surveillance, the newspaper reported.
A U.S. military statement said one of the men arrested was believed to have orchestrated the kidnappings and to have used his residence to hide the captured soldiers.
