Unidentified gunmen killed on Monday a senior officer of the Iraqi National Intelligence Service (INIS) in Iraqi capital Baghdad, a security source said.
Nibras Farman, an INIS officer, was shot dead when gunmen opened fire on him with their silenced weapons in front of his house in al-Baladiyat neighborhood in eastern Baghdad, an Interior Ministry source told our reporters on condition of anonymity.
The source also said that the security forces launched an investigation into the incident.
The repeated assassination of security officers and some civil activists came despite repeated calls by the Iraqi government and some political parties to contain the uncontrolled weapons of some armed groups in the country.
In March, unidentified gunmen assassinated Mohammed Laith, another officer of the INIS, in Mansour neighborhood in western Baghdad.
