ERBIL, Iraq (Reuters) - A joint task force of U.S. coalition and Iraqi special forces have arrested 10 suspected members of a network that provided funding for Islamic State in the capital Baghdad and the northern city of Erbil, the coalition said on Thursday.

The task force conducted raids from Oct. 7-9 and arrested suspected members of the Rawi financial network, which operated as a "financial facilitation group" for the militants, the coalition said in a statement.
