A series of loud explosions has been heard in the centre of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.
The attack appeared to target the heavily-fortified headquarters of the US-led coalition, but so far there has been no word of any casualties.
 

The explosions were close to the building where the new constitution was supposed to be signed on Monday.
Mortars and RPGs were used in the attack on coalition headquarters, with five rockets targeting the al-Rashid hotel, where senior officals are based.
No report yet on casualties.
US aircraft were seen soon afterwards flying over the area, using heat sensors possibly to detect the source of the rockets. This area last came under attack on last Wednesday, when Paul Bremer was to brief the press about the attack which killed 170 people.
