A rocket attack on Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone has killed three foreign security workers and injured 15 more, according to the US Embassy.
The dead and wounded are all employees of the US contractor Triple Canopy.
Two Ugandans and a Peruvian died, and two Americans were among the those wounded when the rocket struck on Thursday.
Triple Canopy, based in Herndon, Virginia, guards security checkpoints for US military facilities in Iraq.
