Rockets are fired at US embassy in Baghdad
Rockets have been fired at the US embassy in Iraq’s capital, according to security sources.
At least three rockets targeted the building in the high-security Green Zone in Baghdad, local security sources said.
One of them fell within the perimeter of the Green Zone but others landed in surrounding residential neighbourhoods, the security sources said.
The attack is the third in a week to target Western diplomatic, military or commercial installations in Iraq after months of relative calm.
Yesterday, at least eight Katyusha rockets landed in the Green zone in an attack targeting the US embassy, causing some minor damage on the compound.
