An explosion was reported in the early hours of Friday in northern Baghdad following a rocket attack on the US embassy in Baghdad's Green Zone.

Axar.az reports that according to Al-Arabiya, the blast was heard in the Adhamiyah neighbourhood, four miles north of Baghdad's Green Zone.

Ambulances rushed to the scene, although no further details were released until the early hours of the morning.

Some sources also said that the target of the blast in Adhamiyah was the office of the Taghadom political Party, run by Parliament Speaker Mohammed al-Halbousi. The day before, a hand grenade had been thrown at the same office.

Sabereen, which is close to the Resistance group in Iraq, said that the bodies of two people have been found near the site of the blast.

Hours after the blast, media reported that a loud explosion was heard in the Yarmouk district in western Baghdad.

Lebanese Al-Mayadeen TV reported that the headquarters of the "Determination" party was targeted in the blast.
