CBI Suspends Session Due to Armed Attack

The Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) decided to suspend its dollar sales on Monday and will resume its sessions on Tuesday after a recent armed attack, a media source said.

On Sunday (June 13), the spokesman for the Baghdad Operations Command (BOC) Maj. General Qassem Atta said fifteen civilians and three terrorists were killed in the armed attack on the CBI in Baghdad.

“The assault left 15 local residents and three terrorists killed,” Atta was quoted as saying by al-Iraqiya TV.

Atta had told Aswat al-Iraq news agency that security forces were closing in on the group of gunmen that detonated an improvised explosive device (IED) off the CBI entrance in central Baghdad.
