After nearly a month-long truce between US and the hardliners in Iraq, the US embassy in Iraq's capital Baghdad came under a rocket attack as several rockets hit the high-security Green Zone that houses the US embassy and other foreign missions. A girl was killed while five others got wounded in the attack. While four rockets hit the Green Zone, 3 others hit other parts of Baghdad. All 7 rockets were launched from the same location.
