LOGISITICAL SUPPORT AREA ANACONDA, Iraq — Ten contractors were injured Thursday evening when ordnance fired from beyond the base perimeter slammed into an occupied building, said U.S. Army Maj. Richard Spiegel, spokesman for the 13th Corps Support Command.

The 10 people were working inside the building when it was hit at 8:34 p.m. The building is not being identified for security reasons, Spiegel said. It was still being used for its intended purpose Friday morning.

As of midday Friday, there was no indication whether the ordnance used was from a mortar or rocket launcher, the two weapons used almost daily by insurgents to attack the base, usually with no damage or casualties.

The U.S. military responded to the attack, but there was no word if the response had any effect.
