Rocket attack hits near US embassy in Baghdad

Multiple rockets hit an Iraqi base hosting American troops near the US embassy early yesterday, the latest in a flurry of attacks against US assets in the country. "The Coalition confirms small rockets impacted the Iraqi base hosting (coalition) troops in the International Zone... No casualties," said coalition spokesman Myles Caggins. Iraq's military said three Katyusha rockets hit inside the Green Zone, the high-security enclave where the US mission and base are located, as well as Iraqi government buildings, United Nations offices and other embassies. The attack was the 19th attack since October to target either the embassy or US troops across Iraq.
