Three rockets hit near the US embassy in the Iraqi capital Baghdad’s high-security Green Zone, reports suggest.

There were no immediate reports of casualties.

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


The US has blamed Iran-backed paramilitary groups for a spate of similar attacks in recent months on the Green Zone, but there has never been a claim of responsibility.
