Fire erupts at Iraqi National Theatre in Baghdad


Civil defense teams rushed on Wednesday to the Iraqi National Theatre in Baghdad after a fire erupted, sources said.

The National Theatre in Iraq was opened during the Saddam Hussein era and closed during the 2003 US invasion. It was re-opened in 2009 with reinforced blast walls to protect against terrorist attacks. It has 1,000 seats.


More details will be reported soon.
