BAGHDAD, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Several hundred Iraqis have reportedly been arrested in the follow-up to Saddam Hussein's capture last weekend.
The BBC reported Gen. Richard Myers, head of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff said some of the several hundred detainees were believed to be leaders of the anti-coalition insurgency.
He said the U.S. military now understood better the structure of the resistance.
Myers gave no details of the raids, but said, "The capture of Saddam Hussein and the intelligence we gleaned from him is a big step in the inevitable process of Iraq's march to democracy."
Saddam himself, however, is not cooperating with his interrogators, Myers said.
