BAGHDAD, Sept 1 (KUNA) -- The Iraqi military authorities on Wednesday referred four army officers to investigations on the background of the terrorist attack on volunteers for the Iraqi army about two weeks ago in Baghdad.
The investigative panel was ordered by Prime Minister and General Commander of the Armed Forces Nuri Al-Maliki; it decided to refer the commander of the second brigade to early retirement and investigation.
The panel also replaced three intelligence officers and referred them to the competent courts, according to a statement by Al-Maliki's office.
The recent attack by a suicide bomber killed 60 volunteers queuing in front of an Iraqi army recruitment center in Baghdad.
The military authorities granted the victims the all pension benefits and accepted the wounded volunteers into the armed forces. (end) ohh.hs KUNA 011747 Sep 10NNNN
