BAGHDAD -- Mortar rounds slammed into the U.S.-controlled Green Zone on Tuesday, with one striking within 100 yards of the Iraqi prime minister's offices, a government official said. No casualties were reported.
It was the second attack against the Green Zone in 12 hours, and it underscored heightened concerns about security in the area that is home to the U.S. and British embassies and thousands of American troops.
The first round of explosions occurred at about 10 p.m. Monday and another round struck at about 10 a.m. Tuesday.
U.S. military spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Garver said no military personnel were injured and no equipment reported damaged in Monday's strike.
