Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Friday dismissed three officials in charge of Baghdad’s security after last weekend’s bombing that killed nearly 300 people and caused outrage at the inadequacy of emergency services and the security apparatus.

A statement posted on his Facebook page said he had fired the commander of military operations, security services and intelligence in the capital.

The bombing, claimed by Daesh (also ISIL or ISIS), was the deadliest bombing in Iraq since US-led forces toppled Saddam Hussein 13 years ago.
