Three people, including a US military service member, were killed and 18 others were injured in an attack on the heavily fortified Green Zone in Baghdad, the State Department has said.

The US embassy in the Iraqi capital "is currently aware of three fatalities: a US military service member, an Iraqi citizen, and a third-country national of unknown nationality," a department statement said on Tuesday.

"We are also aware of approximately 18 injured persons, among them five are US citizens: two service members and three US contract employees," it said.

The statement said without giving details that "multiple rounds of indirect fire" were launched at the international zone on Tuesday afternoon.
