Witnesses told Reuters that an explosion was heard in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

Sky News Arabia reports that the missile landed in the Green Zone in Baghdad and closed the entrance to the road leading to the American embassy.

Dozens of US Apache helicopters are now seen overhead…

Additionally, there are now reports that multiple rockets have struck Balad Airbase, located just north of Baghdad, that hosts US troops…

Meanwhile, Iraqi police have opened fire at armed PMU militiamen during the funeral procession.
