BAGHDAD – Criminals in Sadr City launched two rockets attempting to target a Coalition forces facility April 16.

The rockets struck near a mosque in Rusafa, killing one innocent civilian and wounding 10 other civilians. A house within the neighborhood was also damaged during the attack.

“These criminal elements who insist on ignoring the rule of Iraqi law are certainly not working in the best interest of Iraqis,” said Col. Bill Buckner, Multi- National Corps - Iraq spokesman. “We will continue our efforts to bring these criminals to justice.”

Iraqi Security and Coalition forces were not involved in the attack.
