Five rounds struck the office of Hashemi, the officials said, but the politician was unhurt.

Insurgents have regularly bombarded the Green Zone in recent days, killing two Americans and wounding four others.

The area is the seat of the Iraqi government and many foreign embassies, including the US mission.
