The World : Baghdad Hit, Iran Claims

March 15, 1985

Iran said that it hit Baghdad with a missile, and witnesses in the center of the Iraqi capital said that a huge explosion severely damaged most of the 12-story main branch of the government-owned Rafidan Bank. Iraq denied that Baghdad was hit by a missile, saying that the bank was damaged by a bomb planted by Iranian agents. The two nations also carried out air raids on each other's cities--the latest in a 10-day exchange of attacks on civilian targets.
