"At least two people were killed and four wounded in an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad Saturday evening. All casualties were Americans.

One civilian and one Navy sailor, both assigned to the embassy, were killed in the rocket attack, a military official said, on condition of anonymity.

Of the four injured Americans, two were military, one was a civilian and the fourth was as yet undetermined, the military official said. A rocket landed outside the southern edge of the palace that houses embassy employees a little past 7 p.m."
