Air raid sirens have been heard near the US embassy in Iraq’s capital Baghdad, according to Al Arabiya sources.

The sirens that sounded at the US embassy in Baghdad early on Friday were a security measure, according to a security source.

The latest incident comes a little over a week after a volley of rockets targeted the high-security zone in the Iraqi capital that is home to the US embassy. That attack was the third in a week to target Western diplomatic, military or commercial installations across Iraq after months of relative calm.
