WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A convoy carrying Gen. John Abizaid, the commander of all U.S. forces in the Middle East, was attacked Thursday during a visit to
Iraqi defense forces in Fallujah, U.S. officials told CNN.
Attackers fired on the convoy with small arms and rocket-propelled grenades as it entered a military compound near Fallujah.
No one in his traveling party was injured in the gunbattle.
The attack follows a pair of bombings that killed more than 100 people in two days.
