Five rockets strike near US Embassy in Baghdad
An Iraqi security source said that five rockets had landed close to the US Embassy, APA reports citing AFP.
According to the AFP report, the source said five Katyusha rockets had hit near a high-security compound, while another said that only three missiles struck the area.
There are no immediate reports of casualties.
The attack follows another launch of three missiles that hit the "green zone" in the Iraqi capital, but which resulted in no casualties. The country's security services also found one fully loaded launcher. The green zone occasionally suffers from rocket attacks on account of it being the location where government facilities and foreign embassies are situated.
A day earlier, demonstrations took place in Baghdad’s central district of Al-Jadriya, with people carrying the national flag and shouting patriotic slogans, protesting against the US presence in Iraq, the Al-Sumaria broadcaster reported.
