  • Three rockets hit near US embassy in Baghdad's Green Zone: Sources

Three rockets have targeted an area near the US embassy inside the highly secured Green Zone of Baghdad, security sources told AFP.

There was no immediate reports of casualties.

Sirens could be heard across the zone immediately after the rockets made impact on Monday night.

The Green Zone is home to several Western embassies and government offices including the parliament, the prime minister's office, and the presidency.

In recent months, however, the fortified zone has been repeatedly targeted by Katyusha rockets.
