Rocket falls in Baghdad's Green Zone, killing one: military

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A rocket fell inside Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone and killed one member of Iraq’s security forces on Wednesday, the military said in a brief statement. It did not elaborate.

A rocket had been seen flying towards the Green Zone, which houses government buildings and foreign embassies, and a blast was heard coming from its direction, Reuters witnesses said.
