Someone heard a Dick is in town

Baghdad Green Zone under attack as US vice-president visits

A rocket exploded has exploded near the American embassy in Baghdad during a visit by US Vice President Dick Cheney to the heavily fortified mission.

Smoke could be seen rising near the US compound shortly after the blast.

A spokeswoman for the vice-president says his visit not disrupted, and he was not moved as a result of the explosion.

Last Thursday, four Asian contractors working for the US embassy were killed in a rocket attack.

Mr Cheney is in Iraq on a previously unannounced visit, at the start of a Middle East tour.
