Iraqi Bank Robbery

Guards at an Iraqi bank left work early Wednesday -- taking $282 million in cash with them.

Iraq's Interior Ministry confirms the money -- all in American dollars -- walked out the door with the help of three bank guards. The ministry speculated the guards may have ties to militias.

No word on why the Baghdad bank had more than a quarter-billion bucks in US currency laying around. (NYT)
