3 rockets in direct hit on US embassy in Iraq’s Baghdad

Three out of five rockets fired on Sunday directly hit the US embassy in Iraq’s capital, including one that slammed into a cafeteria at dinner time.

The diplomatic mission, which lies in Baghdad"s high-security Green Zone, has been regularly hit by rockets in recent months, but none of the attacks have been claimed.

Sunday’s attack was the second in a week on the embassy, after three rockets landed near the mission on January 20.
