New drone attack targets US forces in Iraq: US military

A drone packed with explosives hit an Iraqi base housing US troops early Saturday causing damage but no casualties, the US military said.

The attack on the Ain Al-Asad air base was the fourth in Iraq in less than week. "Each attack... undermines the authority of Iraqi institutions, the rule of law and Iraqi national sovereignty," said US-led coalition spokesman Colonel Wayne Marotto.
