The Iraqi government is to distribute special identification cards to residents of Baghdad districts that have been secured, a government security spokesman said in a press statement Tuesday.
Senior officer Qassem Atta said that the move aimed to "organize the process of entering these districts and prevent fighters from sneaking into them."
The system would be applied across the capital after it was "cleared of terrorists" and security centres were established jointly by the United States and Iraq, he added.
About 6,000 detainees, according to Atta, have been seized as part of the Fardh al-Qanoun - Law Enforcement - security plan, launched by Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki on February 14.
To date, 1,400 detaines have been freed as the government plans to increase the number of judges to look into files and free innocent among those held.
