Wet Wednesday

The Green Zone turns Red
Insurgents unleashed their most intense mortar attack to date on the Green Zone on Tuesday, killing 3 people and wounding 18, according to a statement from the American Embassy. The attack set off a succession of explosions that could be heard on both sides of the Tigris River about 5:30 p.m. Multiple rounds landed inside the Green Zone, seat of the embassy and the Iraqi government. The attack came from northeast of the Green Zone, a predominantly Shiite area. The three killed were an American soldier, an Iraqi citizen and a foreign citizen. Five of the wounded were American civilians, two were members of the American military and three were working for American contractors, according to the embassy statement. The blasts smashed windows in buildings and cars, and the worst-hit area was immediately sealed off by American soldiers, Green Zone police and Peruvian security guards.http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/11/world/middleeast/11iraq.html?_r=1&th&emc=th&oref=slogin
