Grenade attack in Baghdad wounds nine security officials amid protests: Iraqi TV

Al-Arabia – Nine members of the Iraqi security forces have been wounded in a grenade attack at the central bank checkpoint in Baghdad, reported Iraqi TV on Wednesday.

Baghdad Operations Command said that nine of its officers had been injured in the attack, according to Iraqi TV.

The central bank is close to the center of Iraq’s capital city, which has been the site of recurring protests since the beginning of October.

The demonstrations prompted the resignation of Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi last week. Politicians have since been discussing the formation of a new government as unrest continues in the capital and the south of the country.Last Update: Wednesday, 4 December 2019 KSA 13:25 – GMT 10:25
