An attack on Iraq’s central bank left 15 people dead and dozens injured as a group of gunmen stormed the building, BBC News reported on Sunday (June 13th).
Police said that five attackers, wearing military uniforms, blew themselves up. Bank employees were the majority killed in the blast.
A suicide bomber detonated his vest near the building which allowed gunmen to get inside the bank. Security forces engaged with the gunmen while army helicopters flew overhead.
No money was removed from the building, but it was heavily damaged in the attack, said Qassim Atta, a Baghdad military spokesman.
