Explosive barrel dismantled near Police Academy in Nineveh

A bomb squad managed Sunday to dismantle a booby-trapped barrel, near the police academy in Nineveh.

A security source said in press remarks that the barrel contained ammonium nitrate, a chemical compound rendered to use in improvised explosive devices.

The barrel was placed near the police academy in Shalalat area, in Nineveh Province, 10 km north of Mosul.

It was dismantled without any human casualties.

Security reports indicate that ISIS is still a threat against stability in Iraq. The terrorist group still has dormant cells, through which it carries out attacks across Iraq like it used to do before 2014.
