BAGHDAD, Jan 8 (Reuters) - Three Katyusha rockets fell on Wednesday inside Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone which houses government buildings and foreign missions, causing a fire, Iraqi police sources told Reuters.

Sirens were sounding inside the Green Zone, and at least one of the rockets fell 100 metres away from the U.S. embassy, the sources said. (Reporting by Baghdad newsroom; Writing by Ahmed Aboulenein; Editing by Chris Reese)
