Iraqi air base hosting US troops targeted in drone attack

An Iraqi air base that hosts U.S. troops was the target of a drone attack early Saturday, though no injuries or deaths were reported.

A spokesperson for the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq tweeted Saturday morning announcing the attack at Ain al-Asad air base, saying it was carried out by an "unmanned aerial surveillance system."

The spokesperson, Col. Wayne Marotto, noted that initial reports indicated damage to a hangar but no injuries were reported. He said the incident was under investigation.

An Iraqi military statement also confirmed the attack, according to The Associated Press.
