(RFE/RL) March 25, 2007 -- Police have detained a man as he was trying to detonate a truck rigged with two tons of explosives and several thousands liters of chlorine in western Iraq.


The military says the incident occurred on March 23 near the entrance to a police station.


That station is reportedly about 150 meters from a water treatment plant in Al-Ramadi, the capital of Al-Anbar Governorate.


There have been seven chlorine attacks in Iraq this year.
