One or two rockets struck the heavily fortified Green Zone Saturday in Baghdad, lightly wounding two people, a US official said, the second attack against the complex in three days. The blast sent a huge plume of smoke into the air and thundered across central Baghdad shortly before sunset, about the same time as Thursday's rocket attack on the Green Zone, the site of the US and British embassies, the Iraqi government and thousands of American troops. Six people were wounded, none seriously, in that attack. After Saturday's blast, the US government public address system could be heard to warn people to "duck and cover" and to stay away from windows.
