TEHRAN: At least one person sustained reported injured when three rockets hit the US embassy in Baghdad on Sunday, international media reports said.

One of the rockets hit an embassy cafeteria at dinner time, a security source told AFP, while two others landed nearby.

The US embassy did not respond to requests for comment and it was not immediately clear whether the injured person was an American national or an Iraqi staff member working at the mission.

The attack marked a dangerous escalation in the spree of rocket attacks in recent months that have targeted the embassy or Iraqi military bases where American troops are deployed.

None of the attacks has been claimed but Washington has repeatedly blamed Iran-backed military factions in Iraq.
