A rocket attack on a crowded dining hall at a U.S. base in Mosul left at least 10 people dead and more than 50 wounded, U.S. officials told NBC News on Tuesday.
Officials at the Pentagon said three rockets were fired at the U.S. forward operating base in the northern city "right at lunchtime." The base is occupied by U.S. and Iraqi military as well as civilian contractors.
There was no breakdown on the nationality of the casualties.
Separately, in a statement in Iraq, the military said explosions at the base caused "multiple casualities" and that the cause was under investigation.
A military spokesman in Mosul declined to give further details.
The U.S. Army's Task Force Olympia is based in this predominantly Sunni Muslim city.
