Iraqi police in Salaheddine province said Saturday (September 15th) that unknown assailants wearing military uniforms killed a high-ranking officer in the counter-terrorism agency.
"Gunmen in Iraqi military uniforms opened fire with machine guns on a government vehicle used by Col. Saad Mohammed, director of investigations at the Salaheddine counter-terrorism department," Hasan al-Majmaie told Al-Shorfa.
The colonel "was killed on his way to work while his driver was seriously wounded", he said.
"A security force cordoned off the area of the attack and opened an investigation to determine the circumstances of the incident and the entity that stands behind it," al-Majmaie added.
