UK TROOPS UNDER FIRE: Missiles strike army base that houses 200 British personel

The attack comes just  two days after the same Soviet-made rockets were launched at another barracks

Camp Taji north of Baghdad was targeted by Katyusha rockets tonight, as yet there have been no casualties reported at the base .No coalition troops were injured in the Soviet-made Katyusha rocket attack on Camp Taji north of Baghdad. ‘No Coalition troops were affected by this small attack at Taji Base,’ coalition military spokesman Colonel Myles Caggins III said in a tweet. 

The missiles were reported as the same type that another American base last week but no one claimed responsibility so far for the strike. Four members of the Iraqi military were wounded in the eight-missile strike on Balad air base around 50 miles north of Baghdad.
