Two Iraqis wounded in rocket attack

BAGHDAD, July 22 (KUNA) -- Two Iraqi people were injured in a Katyusha attack on the Green Zone on Thursday.
The attack took place when a Katyusha rocket hit the Green Zone near the US Embassy in Baghdad, an Iraqi police source told KUNA.
The rocket was launched from Al-Doura suburb in south Baghdad, the source said.
The Green Zone, which lies in central Baghdad on the west bank of Tigris River, is home to the Presidency, ministries, parliament, many western and Arab embassies, including the US and British ones, and senior Iraqi officials' offices.
The zone was hit by a rocket attack early July when US Vice President Joe Biden visited Iraq. (end) mhg.mt KUNA 221829 Jul 10NNNN
