Rockets hit Iraqi base hosting U.S. forces near Baghdad

Three rockets landed on a military base hosting U.S. forces north of Baghdad late on Monday, an Iraqi military statement said, without providing further details.

A military source earlier said two mortar shells had landed in the Iraqi section of the sprawling Taji base, located about 30 km (18 miles) north of the Iraqi capital, and another outside it.

No casualties were caused by the shelling, the source said. He said sirens wailed in the U.S. section of the base during the incident.
