Thousands of soldiers, meanwhile, continued combing through fields and questioning suspects as the search for three missing U.S. soldiers continued following a May 12 ambush south of Baghdad that killed four other soldiers and their interpreter.

The mortar shell that hit parliament landed almost above the office of the parliament speaker and caused only minor damage, said lawmaker Sabah al-Saadi, who was at a committee meeting inside at the time.

A few hours later, several more mortar rounds were fired. Some of them landed in the Green Zone, but there were no reports of casualties, the U.S. Embassy said.
