Blast Near Coalition Headquarters in Baghdad


BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A loud explosion sent clouds of smoke into the air on Monday near an entrance to the "Green Zone" compound in Baghdad where the U.S.-led administration is based, and soldiers at the scene said they suspected a car bomb.
The blast, close to Iraq's Foreign Ministry, flipped at least one car into the air, soldiers said. There was no word on any casualties.

Last week, a suicide car bomb attack on another entrance to the Green Zone killed several Iraqis including the president of the U.S.-appointed Governing Council.


Short article, but I'm sure as information fans out, it will be printed.

I think the thing to watch for is if another leading member of the Iraqi Governing Council has been targetted.

It wouldn't look good if someone else has been assasinated this time inside the "Green Zone".

Four Said Killed in Baghdad Explosion


BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - An explosion destroyed a civilian car with armor plating Monday near an entrance to the headquarters of the U.S.-led coalition, killing four people, the military said. The British Foreign Office said the blast killed two British citizens.

About an hour after the 2 p.m. blast, a rocket or mortar round landed in the Green Zone, which houses the coalition headquarters, the coalition press office said. There were no reports of casualties or damage.

Several more blasts were heard in central Baghdad at 4 p.m. Witnesses said a mortar shell had landed in the city's Karrada district, and another slightly damaged the roof of a school in Salihiya district. There were no reports of casualties at the school.
