BAGHDAD — The US Embassy in Iraq says a rocket attack on Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone has killed three foreign security contractors.

In a statement, the embassy said Thursday that another 15 people, including two Americans, were wounded when a rocket struck the area, home to the offices of the Iraqi government and the large US Embassy. Iraqi police said it was a mortar, not a rocket, that struck the Green Zone.

The embassy said the three killed two Ugandans and a Peruvian who worked for a US government security contractor.
