Multiple Blasts Hit Central Baghdad

A series of at least 10 explosions echoed throughout central Baghdad (search) on Saturday night. Their cause was not immediately apparent.

The blasts appeared to be targeting the fortified Green Zone (search) enclave that houses the U.S. Embassy and Iraqi interim government buildings. An air raid siren sounded from the enclave soon after the explosions began.

The U.S. military had no immediate comment.
