Two rockets have hit a base in Iraq housing 350 Spanish troops.

The attack, the third targeting military bases hosting foreign forces in a week, targeted the Besmaya base south of Baghdad on Monday night.

The troops are Spanish legionaries and members of the Guardia Civil working as part of NATO’s commitment to help train the Iraqi security forces.
