Overnight attacks in Baghdad


A series of rocket attacks have hit hotels and the oil ministry in the centre of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.
Rocket-propelled grenades launched from a donkey cart hit the Palestine and Sheraton hotels, in a heavily-guarded area in the heart of the city.

At least one person was wounded at one of the hotels, which are both used by foreign reporters and US companies.

Blasts were also reported at the oil ministry building, where a fire broke out, sending up thick black smoke.

Fire engines moved in to tackle the blaze as US troops stood guard.

Now we have to search all the Donkey Carts in Iraq? Good Grief.
