Barclays increased net profits by 43 percent in the first half of the year, the troubled British bank announced on Wednesday.

Barclays, which earlier this month sacked chief executive Antony Jenkins with the bank plagued by a series of market-rigging scandals, said profit after tax rose to £1.611 billion ($2.512 billion, 2.275 billion euros) in the six months to the end of June from £1.126 in the first half of 2014.
