No injuries as rocket hits BBC bureau in Baghdad

A rocket hit the building housing the British Broadcasting Corporation's Baghdad bureau, causing damage but no injuries. The rocket hit the roof, damaging equipment and opening a large hole. It was part of a rocket and missile barrage targeting the heavily fortified Green Zone in downtown Baghdad. Patrick Howse, the BBC bureau chief in Baghdad says Friday that the "rocket struck the roof of the BBC Baghdad bureau. It caused structural damage but no one was injured." He says it left a big hole in the roof, approximately 1 meter by 1.5 meters.
