Eight civilians are thought to have been killed and four wounded in an attack on Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone, the US military says.

A column of smoke rose above the zone after two loud blasts were heard. US forces blamed "indirect attacks" - jargon for mortars or rockets.

The Green Zone houses US and UK embassies as well. A bomb was diffused earlier this month outside of a popular restaurant. The British embassy advised all its staff to avoid restaurants.

Casualties in this attack have been taken to military hospitals inside the Green Zone. According to the report "mortars and rockets" are being blamed for the two loud explosions heard.
