Cairo: An Iraqi man, angered by his sacking, had lobbed a hand grenade at the workplace near Baghdad, according to local media.

The man had thrown the grenade at the municipality building in the district of Al Shab north of Baghdad, a security source was quoted as saying. No casualties resulted from the attack.

“Initial information shows that the man was a municipal worker whose services have recently been terminated,” the source added.

“His dismissal infuriated him. He threatened to take revenge and made good on his threat,” the source added.
