Two rockets hit a Shi'ite enclave in southern Baghdad on Sunday, killing at least 10 people and injuring eight, police said. The Katyusha rockets slammed into the Abu Dishir district, which is surrounded by a predominantly Sunni neighborhood. Earlier, an explosion near the fortified Green Zone in central Baghdad killed at least two people and injured eight. The blast was close to the Iranian Embassy, but authorities did not initially believe it was targeting the compound. The Green Zone houses the US and British embassies and key offices of the Iraqi government.
