  Rockets fired at US hotel in Iraq
Updated 26 October 2003, 11.38
The Rahsid Hotel, Baghdad, after the rocket attack
One person is thought to have been killed in a rocket attack on a Baghdad hotel where US government staff were staying.

Up to 15 people are reported to have been injured in the attack. US Deputy Defence Secretary Paul Wolfowitz was in the hotel but wasn't hurt.

He said: "This terrorist act will not deter us from completing our mission."

Seventeen people died in a bomb attack on the United Nations HQ in Baghdad in August.

Since US-led troops arrived in Baghdad, people haven't been allowed on the streets at night - there's been a curfew.

But that was lifted on Saturday night for the start of Ramadan.

That's a big religious festival when Muslims fast each day for a month.
