Gunmen Shoot at Iran Mission in Baghdad

The Washington Post:
Gunmen opened fire at the Iranian Embassy in Baghdad Saturday but there were no reports of injuries, Iranian officials said. The official Islamic Republic News Agency quoted sources from the embassy as saying the unidentified gunmen shot at the mission from building overlooking the embassy.

They said this was the third time the embassy has been targeted since Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim Jaafari's visited Iran last week.

The sources added the gunmen "managed to flee despite the quick intervention of the Iraqi police and embassy guards."
