Baghdad Green Zone hit by rockets
( dpa ) - The heavily-fortified Green Zone in the centre of Baghdad was attacked by a barrage of rockets or mortars early Sunday morning, with the BBC reporting smoke rising from buildings.
The US public address system warned people "to duck and cover" and to stay away from windows during the attack. There were no reports of casualties.
The Green Zone houses the Iraqi government headquarters, the US and British embassies, and thousands of US troops.
