Rockets Rain Down On The Green Zone

Two dead, seventeen wounded inside the heavily fortified government and diplomatic compound. Meanwhile the USA is bombing civilian areas on the other side of the wall.
Al-Sadr has called for a "million-strong" anti-U.S. demonstration on Wednesday in Baghdad to protest the fifth anniversary of the capture of the Iraqi capital by invading U.S. troops.
Sounds like everything is going fine, then...

UPDATE: One of the wounded was an Aussie soldier who suffered shrapnel wounds but was apparently not badly injured: he was discharged quickly and has asked not to be identified. So everything is still fine, m'kay?
