Explosions And Gunfire At Iraq Central Bank Leave 15 Dead, 40 Injured
Looks like Iraq has had enough of fiat experimentation. Press TV reports that explosions and gunfire at the Iraqi Central Bank have left 15 dead and more than 40 injured. No reports yet if any copies of Hayek's Road to Serfdom (incidentally, #1 at Amazon.com) have been found at the scene. More from the report: "Those behind the attacks on Sunday
triggered eight explosions and took hostages, prompting a siege at the
bank's whereabouts, AFP reported.
Bank workers comprised most of the casualties, said one defense official.
It is yet to unclear whether the assailants had meant to empty the vault, destroy the building or target the employees.
Late last month, 15 people died during a deadly rampage of a series of jewelry shops in the southwest of the Iraqi capital." Is it time yet for an alligator infested moat to be built as a precaution around the offices at 33 Liberty?
