Insurgents Fire on Poland Embassy in Iraq
WARSAW, Poland - More than a dozen insurgents attacked the Polish Embassy in Baghdad with automatic weapons Sunday, and embassy guards returned fire in an exchange that lasted for a half hour, a Polish Foreign Ministry spokesman said. No one was reported killed or wounded.



Aleksander Checko said "a group of about 15 attackers" opened fire on the embassy at about 8 p.m.


"The gunfire went on about 30 minutes. Our guards returned fire and the attackers disappeared," Checko said.


U.S. troops went to the embassy, but the attackers had fled, Checko said.
