BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The Green Zone government and diplomatic compound in central Baghdad came under renewed mortar or rocket attack on Sunday night, Reuters witnesses said.

The sound of at least six separate explosions shook central Baghdad and smoke could be seen rising from the U.S.-protected compound. A siren blared and a recording warned people to take cover. The attack followed two separate barrages earlier in the day.
