A missile attack hit an area near the Green Zone in the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Sunday, security sources said.


The area close to the government and foreign mission buildings came under the attack of three missiles, according to the sources.

The Green Zone is at the center of Baghdad and is frequently attacked by missiles.

Iraq is witnessing mass protests which started against poor living conditions and rampant corruption, but spiraled into demands for dissolving Adel Abdul-Mahdi's government.

According to the Iraq's High Commission for Human Rights, at least 325 Iraqis have been killed and around 15,000 have been injured since the protests began on Oct. 1.
